Giant Mealworms are back and for a limited time we are offering Giant Mealworms for the price of our regular Large Mealworms.

Yellow mealworms, Tenebrio molitor, is believed to have originated in the mountainous regions of Iran and Northern India and migrated into Europe during biblical times. Mealworms were introduced into the United States around the time of the Revolutionary War. In the early 1800's mealworms were already being raised as a food for pets, especially birds.

    Live Delivery Guarantee Winter
    Fluker Farms guarantees live delivery when temperatures are as low as 16 degrees at the destination and/or regional sort facilities. While most insect growers simply refuse to ship at temperatures below this threshold, Fluker Farms recognizes how much you rely on live insect for your pet’s nourishment and feel you should have a choice in the matter. Therefore, we provide the following options when the weather drops to 0-15 degrees (we will not ship to any areas below 0 degrees).

    2) Hold For Weather (HFW)-If you choose the HFW option, your order may be held up to 7 days while we wait on improved shipping conditions. If after 7 days the weather doesn’t improve enough for your order to be shipped, it will be cancelled and any charges refunded.

    Wouldn't hesitate to buy again
    Dulce Jimenez (Franklin Park, IL) 4/5/2017 8:59 PM
    After reading the previous reviews, I'll admit I was a bit hesitant to buy the giant meal worms. However, I decided to go ahead and take a risk. I'm so glad I decided to buy the giant meal worms. When I received them, every one of them was alive. I didn't choose one-day shipping either. For anyone that's thinking about not buying these worms because of the not so great reviews, I suggest you give them a chance. I will definitely add these to my order next time I place an order with Flukers.

    I have never had a problem with my shipments. I usually order the large mealworms but this last time I ordered the giant. Wow, so many dead when they arrived. Not only were they dead, but they were mushy and were very smelly. Don't know what happened along the way but I'm hesitant to order again. I'm going to order the large and see how it goes.
    Too many dead.
    Andrew Blaschke (Chesterland, OH) 8/23/2015 2:10 PM
    Can't argue with the price of $500 of these. But if I order 500 I don't want to have to sit and pick 200 dead ones out of the batch. Wasn't enough money on the line to make a formal complaint; I'll just order elsewhere next time. They must fill these by weight. But whoever is in the warehouse weighing these things needs to get their eyes checked. Normally never have an issue with orders here, but this one in particular kind of lowered my expectations. They aren't sent in any kind of bedding which is totally fine. But on the flip side you can see every individual specimen. Easy to see how many dead there were. Just disappointed in this I guess. -Andrew
