How To Raise

Mealworms with Little Effort





Mealworms make great fishing bait and they are easy to grow at home. They require about ten minutes of your time a week after the initial setup.

Mealworms come in two sizes, small and giant.

Do not mix them!
They are not compatable!

To start you need a new 5 gallon bucket (no lid).
You can buy these from your fastfood places for around $1.00.

Then go to the bait shop and buy a couple of boxes of the size mealworms that you want to grow.
Remember Don't mix the sizes! Grow the small or the giant

I started mine with a big box of Cost Cutter Oats, but Quaker Oaks will do. I now use hog brand meal. I buy one hundred pounds (several of us split it) for around $6.00 from a farm supply place.

Now fill the bucket about 1/4 full of meal.
Dump in the worms (the more you start with the better).
I start with about 1,000 but I use them all year long..
Now slice up a potato and throw it in. What we're looking for here is something to hold moisture. I use only potatoes.but you can use apples, fresh corn cobs, etc.

Buy some nylon screening from the hardware store to cover the top. You do not have to tie it in place. The bugs do not fly.

Now the worms will turn into grubs, then black bugs, then die.
It will look like nothing's in there but have patients.
Feed potatoes and meal when you think it's necessary.
I add 1 potato per week now, plus a cup or two of meal.
Leave the old stuff in bucket. The stuff that looks like powdered residue are eggs, that's your next crop.

This process takes a couple of months, but you will have worms of all sizes, black bugs and grubs eventually.
I fish with the worms and grubs.

Give it a try!
