Are you interested in breeding mealworms on a small or larger scale? Then you have come to the best place with us. For standard small-scale breeding with manual feeding and harvesting or switching to semi/full automic breeding, we can help you with the necessary products.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our product specialists.
Breeding by machine or by hand
For the cultivation of mealworms, we have to see whether it is done manually or mechanically.
With mechanical cultivation, the cultivation boxes must be coordinated with the manufacturer of the machines. We are happy to embark on this journey together. For more information, please contact your account manager.
With manual cultivation, one often opts for cultivation in stacks and/or racks.
It is very important that sufficient airflow is possible during cultivation. Mealworms create heat and if it can't get away, they die from these elevated temperatures.
Farming in stacks
Special stacking containers are used for breeding mealworms. The high stacking angles in combination with the lowered side walls ensure good air circulation between the stacked containers. The stable egg-laying sieve insert can be easily moved while the eggs and larvae remain in the container.
Farming in racks
Low plastic containers in combination with racks are often used for the cultivation of mealworms. Internal height of 65 or 120 mm.
The advantage of working with racks is that with an accelerated or delayed cultivation process you can only move the relevant containers without disturbing the entire stack.
The racks can be supplied with one or two columns, on feet or wheels, one bin deep or two bins deep. Depending on your internal process, we can offer the appropriate solution here.
