Pisces Mini Mealies (Approximately 1000 Worm Tub) (Live) (Cannot ship to WA due to Quarantine Restrictions)
Mini Mealies are small mealworms. The information below is regarding regular mealworms but much of it also applies to mini mealies. The 1000 quantity of mini mealies in each tub is only a rough estimate. We don't guarantee the number of worms inside. See disclaimer below.
Mealworms - Plump nutrient-rich Pisces mealworms (Tenebrio molitor) provide a natural insect food for birds and lizards in your aviary and garden. Adds variety to diets and are an ideal source of protein for finches, robins, wagtails, other birds and reptiles.
Pisces mealworms are a clean and easily handled food for many pets, and adds variety to your animal's diet. Mealworms are an ideal source of protein for seed-eating birds; especially important at breeding time. Eco-gardeners believe that feeding wild-birds in their yard naturally encourages insect foraging birds to keep the garden cleaner of pests.
Disclaimer: (please read this 5 point disclaimer before ordering)
1 of 5. Risk of ordering: We take all the measures possible to get live Insects to buyers asap and in good condition, however, we accept no responsibility for insects that die during shipping. We are based in Sydney and orders from outside Sydney have an increased risk. Please consider that the risk increases significantly for interstate or rural deliveries and during warmer months where mealworms will be in transit without cooling. Strictly no refunds for insects that arrive dead. For interstate (except Melbourne) or rural orders we suggest selecting the Australia Post Express freight option when available OR consider Dried Mealworms as a safer alternative (see below)
2 of 5. Bulk Orders 1kg plus: Our 1kg, 2kg, 6kg mealworm packs are special ordered every Monday morning so please have your order in by Saturday for delivery the following week. Mealworm stock usually arrive to us on Tuesday or Wednesday and we send them to you after they have arrived (you will receive a shipment notification when your order is sent out) Let us know in the comments section (when ordering) if it's urgent and we'll try to fast-track things if possible
3 of 5. We don't guarantee amount of worms per tub: The manufacturer tells us there about 1000 mini mealies mealworms in these packs. However, in no way do we guarantee this amount regardless of how many mealworms are provided in any tub. We only sell this item as the manufacturer Pisces provides it. Strictly no refunds if you think there are less than 1000 mealworms in tub. We have no way of checking worm amounts and counting them is not feasible.
4 of 5. Orders will not be sent close to weekend: If it gets too close to the end of the week we may not send your order until the following week to avoid worms being stuck at a courier depot over the weekend.
5 of 5. For Orders Outside of Sydney during Summer: During the Summer months (Start of December to end of the February) we are no longer freighting mealworms outside of Sydney. Due to the hot weather, it's just too risky Or consider Dried Mealworms instead
How to feed: Feed mealworms straight from the container or transfer them to glass or crockery bowls with five-centimetre sides slippery sides prevent their escape. The birds will quickly learn to sort out the mealworms from the bran, especially if you only put mealworms in the bowl for the first few times.
Suggestion: If your planning to store the mealworms for longer then about 7 days you might want to consider topping up the food inside the mealworm container with more Bran. (see below)
