The adult stage of the Superworm, this harmless beetle is docile and makes an excellent model for insect anatomy with its 3 distinct body regions. Larva is 2 to 4" long and does not readily pupate. The pupa can take 3 to 4 weeks to develop into an adult. Beetles and larvae are easy to care for - simply provide bran meal.

Assortment includes about 12 adults, 12 larvae, and 2 to 5 pupae (if available).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over a month and doing well We bought about a month and a half ago and the group is doing well. They have started reproducing, too. They have made for a great educational tool at our nature center as they are very active.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always order this product... We have 40+ classrooms that use this bran meal for their 1st grade Life Science mealworm units each year. It's always the best quality, packaged making it easy to divide and distribute to the different buildings. Our mealworms thrive, the kids love this experience! Delivery is always prompt and product arrives in perfect shape. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall, every living specimen that I order from Carolina comes in great shape. I especially appreciate the good directions and tips for keeping the specimens alive and thriving. I have always been able to get a great colony going from the adults I purchase and the adults work perfectly for the Beetle Races activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Classroom Pet I ever met My students call them "Darling Beetles". Darkling Beetles are truly darling. They don't bite. They are gentle, active and they're easy to care for. They smell nice in clean environment. Try a sage branch in their terrarium. The students love them. They are almost, adorable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mealworms I used this kit in a kindergarten class this year. It was wonderful. It provided opportunity for hands on, predicting, science journals, utilizing the characteristics of non-fiction writing, and satisfied (and stimulated) the children's natural curiosity. We accidently found out that baby chicks love to eat mealworms!
