Our local pet shop has closed and we require mealworms to feed our bearded dragon. Could you please let us know roughly how many mealworms we get per weight amount, and if we buy the largest amount, what do we feed them to make mealworms last longer?

There are about 3000 plus to the 100grms, to keep them long term, its best in a refrigerator running at about 10degC (a lot warmer than a food fridge) they will need feeding on bran and a source of moisture such as banana skin or sliced apple or any fresh green waste veg. If you haven’t got a fridge then a cold floor is the next best, this time of year they should start to keep longer as the temperatures drop, when its warm they start to hatch into the beetles.
