    By the end of the week I am looking at having around 20k mealworms. Locally they are selling $ 40 for 2000. I will be interested in selling a few. We can figure out a price per 100, 500, 1000 etc plus shipping. I do have papal. I need to research how to ship them but I am willing if anyone is interested.

    These are LIVE mealworms, not dried.

    When you find out, let me know how much you charge to purchase and ship 1000. I need to branch out and include them in my menagerie. [​IMG]

    I'd probably be interested in one of the smaller amounts. Will wait to see the price list.
    How long do they last in the fridge?

    Shipping might be a problem, if anyone bought some that was shipped please tell me what they arrived in.

    As far as costs, tell me what you have paid, or seen what others are charging. I will research costs as well. Shipping will, have to, be priority mail for sure, I dont know if I will be able to put them in a flat rate box without them dying.

    I don't know how much they cost because I don't go to the pet store and our Walmart never has them. [​IMG]
