Our regular mealworms pupate readily at a very specific temperature range. Any colder than 70° they will have slow metabolisms and it will take many, many weeks. Any warmer than 85° and they will become too warm, not allowing their metabolisms to slow enough for them to enter pupation.
So if you can keep them right between 75 and 80° that is the prime temperature for pupation to occur readily.
We sell several species of worm, please be sure to purchase our regular mealworms found on this page: Mealworms
For the home breeder, we recommend using the good instructions found on either of these two websites:
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.
