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!
No, the only live animals we sell are mealworms. Exotic Nutrition does not sell any other exotic or non-exotic animals. If you are looking to obtain a new pet, ExoticNutrition suggests searching your local newpaper ads, craigslist, etc. for adoption services in your area. There are exotic animals breeders located throughout the country as well, please be sure to purchase from a breeder who is certified and licensed. Many pet stores (smaller locally owned ones, not big-box stores like Petsmart or Petco) carry exotic pets as well.
If you are not completely satisfied with your order, you are welcome to return or exchange product(s) within 30 days of the delivery date. Products returned in whole, undamaged, and in the original packaging will be refunded or credited for the full price of the product. The customer is responsible for return shipping costs as well as original shipping costs.
