      You can get live worms at any pet store really. You can also order them online, even if you just do a google search for live mealworms, there are a bunch of companies that sell live mealworms and they will send them to the post office for you to pick them up so they don't freeze or sit in a box in the hot sun in the summer time.

      You can raise mealworms easily with 5 pounds of bran and a large plastic tub. They don't need much care, feed them some fruits or veggie scraps and they will multiply like crazy.

      There are a ton of articles about the different ways to raise mealworms, find the way that works best for you for where you live and you'll have a mealworm colony that will run for years:)
