    I was getting sick of paying $1 for a dozen meal worms, so I did a little looking online and these were the very best prices I found for mealworms and wax worms (which are the larve for the "bee moth/ b moth" that i keep hearing about but have been confused what people were referring to)

    I'll add their price list here. They seem to be pretty conscious of how their bugs are raised (naturally).

    If you don't want to handle the mealworms because they're nasty looking (like I do) - this company sells them where you don't have to remove them from their bag
    and put them in a container with meal - www.bestnest.com



    Happy eating!
