Your Guide to Giant Mealworms

Tasty, Nutritious Live Feeder Insects

In folklore, a giant is someone of very great size with superhuman strength. In the world of feeder insects, giant mealworms may not be your typical mythical giant, but their name definitely fits.

Giant mealworms are giant!

Giant mealworms are twice the size of regular mealworms, measuring 1½ inches long. They are a great go-between for reptiles and other animals that need a mealworm that is bigger than our standard mealworms (ranging from ¼ inch to 1 inch in size) but smaller than our superworms (ranging from 1 to 2 inches in size).

Giant mealworms pack a nutritious punch!

Mealworms are rich in vitamins A and B, making them a perfect choice for happier, healthier reptiles and animals. If you want to ensure your pet has the essential nutrients for proper nutrition, growth, and nervous system maintenance, giant mealworms are an excellent choice.

Giant mealworms have a “super-sized” shelf life!

Our giant mealworms are shipped live to your doorstep and ready to feed your pet. However, giant mealworms have a great shelf life compared to some other feeder insects. If stored properly, they will keep for several weeks.

Giant mealworms are beloved by many—including fishermen!

For a while, giant mealworms have been growing in popularity among fishermen. Trout, bass, crappie, perch, bluegill, and other panfish will take the bait of a buttery, delicious giant mealworm.

Not only will many fish strike at giant mealworms, but mid-size bearded dragons, leopard geckos, chameleons, wild birds, and even chickens enjoy them.
