    Quote:Wow. I must be getting ripped off. I have been selling locally for 50/$1

    Anyways, my original stock came from http://www.wormman.com
    They ship quickly and safely. I found their prices very reasonable. 1,000 worms shipped is $15.98.

    Set a sack of feed on some damp concrete. Collect resulting beetles and larvae in a few weeks. Fast, free mealworms. I end up with mealworms every year without trying. [​IMG]

    Many suppliers are out of mealworms now because of a virus that developed in the largest supplier's stock. Soon you can buy them again from most suppliers by the thousands for a few dollars + shipping.

    I just now ordered 5,000 medium size from Grubco for $20.00 http://grubco.com/

    See
    http://www.ciar.org/feedercharts/insect.html for a list of all suppliers.

    I especially like Reptilefood.com, but they're out now:
    http://www.reptilefood.com/reptilef...t_id=2&shpid=3GA0DB73KUKM8LAHS2BB8KVRX6V3D71A

    Or you can raise your own by the millions:
