Giant Meal Worms

Giant Mealworms are an alternative live food source for small mammals, reptiles and birds when you need a larger worm than the standard common mealworm.

Giant mealworms are simply common mealworms that have been treated with an insect growth hormone to discourage them from morphing into beetles, thus they grow significantly larger. Some will morph into beetles, however they are sterile. Therefore, they grow twice the size and definitely much fatter than a standard common mealworm.

Giant Mealworms make Excellent bait for pan fish including Trout, Bass, Crappie, Perch and Bluegill.

Care Information

If you plan to use all of your giant mealworms within a couple of weeks, you can either store them in the refrigerator or in a cool part of your home. They are extremely easy to keep. Just store them in your refrigerator at 45-50 degrees F. and they go into a dormant state and will last for months. Do not confuse the Giant Mealworm with the Superworm (Zophobas) which would quickly die in the refrigerator.
