Here's a great thread on the topic: http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/how-to-raise-mealworms
And here's where I will buy mine: http://www.westknollfarm.com/Meal-Worms.html
I get dried mealworms along with dried crickets from www.naturespeck.com
The mealworms are $13.75 for 1 lb., and $53 for 5 lbs. They give you free shipping on orders over $30. The dried crickets are very high quality. I mix them into "The Ladies'" food everyday and they just devour them.
We all try to feed our chickens and pets the highest quality meal worms available. Some people like myself are using all organic bran and veggies for the mealies, so no chemicals involved unlike worms bred by commercial breeders or even overseas.
We have seen the negative impact of dog and/or cat food from China here in the USA at numerous occaisions. So now chemical treated dried meal worms for our poultry, reptiles and others? No thanks. I will keep breeding my own and encourage all BYCers to do the same.
