Our mealworms are naturally raised with no chemicals or vitamins added. Lots of people choose to eat our worms and we are extremely careful in our methodology in rearing them. We only feed them human-grade carrots and bran we buy from a mill that sells it to bakeries. We pay quite a bit more, but we are extremely cautious and conscientious.
For Hornworms, Depending on what size we ship you (small or large) it will take roughly 20 days for your hornworms to pupate (about 5 days longer for the smalls). When you get them, you can put them in a cool area around 55° to 60° and it will keep them dormant for several weeks for you. No colder though!
