Hey there BuffOrps416
Coincidentally my order of live and dried meal worms was just dropped off at the front door; stocking up for Christmas
You know, I never noticed that the Hentastic ‘Mealworm To Go’ which are a Produce of China; Packed and distributed by Unipet USA LLC did not have an expiry date .. I have turned the packet over and under and around multiple times and can not see one.
Because my interest was peaked, I did some research but there was nothing concrete as to whether they expire or not. I even checked out the site of my supplier here in Aus and all it said regarding the dried meal worms was “Dried mealworms store well and require no special treatment. No refrigeration needed."
Out of interest, what was the expiration date on the Royal Wing Mealworms please? I would be interested to see if it is a short amount of time or a long time. That may not help though because we have no idea how long they have been on the shelf.
Anyways, unless the meal worms are really old when they get here, no chance of them expiring, 3.5oz [100g] of dried meal worms are gone within a month, along with the live ones
I have never had any issues which I could specifically put down to the meal worms and my gals get a couple of live ones each every day plus every 3-4 days I throw a handful of dried meal worms onto the lawn for them to scratch and eat; they appear healthy and happy.
Subscribing because I am interested to read what others think.
Edited to Add: After reading other posts, I thought I would just add that the dried worms I order do come in a resealable bag but once I have opened that they are transferred to a screw top glass jar and as mentioned, all gone within a month.
