These are roast dried and not live mealworms!
Roast dried mealworms are 100% natural. Though they are dehydrated, they are still packed with natural oils, protein and vitamins.
Wild birds, sugar gliders, fish, and chickens will enjoy them. These are perfect when you can't store live mealworms, or conditions are too hot/cold for shipping them.
Q & A
Q: What's the best way to store them?
A: It is very important that dried mealworms are stored properly to ensure long term freshness. Storing them in a cupboard which is warm or humid will diminish shelf life.
Our first recommendation is freezing or storing in a refrigerator or freezer: Place the dried mealworms in a clean, tight-sealing freezer bag. Maximum cold storage is recommended because heat and moisture are the greatest enemies. The mealworms should keep well for up to a year.
If you must store them in a cabinet, make sure that the cabinet is both dark and cool. Place the mealworms into either a plastic or glass container with a tight-fitting lid. They will last up to 6 months with no degradation.
Q. Can I rehydrate them?
To rehydrate them, we've found the best method is a long soak in cold water for 4 to 8 hours (or overnight). You can also use hot or boiling water for a much faster 30-minute soak, but the hot water tends to break them up a bit more.
Put the mealworms in a container, add water and stir them will to separate them. You'll know that they are done when they have swollen up, softened, and turned pale in color.
If you're feeding wild birds, using nectar to rehydrate them increases the flavor, and attracts more birds.
