Are the Mealworms Locally Sourced?

The live mealworms are raised in the USA and sourced from responsible growers. The worms are fed wheat bran and fresh vegetables that are naturally rich in vitamins. ExoticNutrition will leave the choice of adding artificial vitamins and minerals up to the customer at home.

Similar to a great majority (about 99%) of dried mealworm distributors in the U.S., ExoticNutrition sources their dried mealworms from manufacturers in China. The mealworms are all-natural and do not contain dangerous additives such as formaldehyde or melamine. These products are regularly inspected by the FDA, USDA, and US Fish & Wildlife when being imported to assure their quality and safety. These dried mealworms are fed by thousands of U.S. customers every year and are a great source of protein for bluebirds, chickens, sugar gliders, and all other insectivores. Importing from a larger manufacturer also allows the customers to enjoy this great product at a very affordable price!
