King worms?!!?

Post by SpiderSam on Tue May 19, 2015 8:53 pm

So I got "kingworms" was told they were bigger mealworms... from my research king worms were superworms but these guys have no black bum? so what do I do to keep these guys alive can I place them with my existing mealworm colony???

They remind me of my "Giant" Mealworms, some of them don't breed but some do. When they do their babies look the same as normal Mealworms.


I agree they don't look like Super Worms, not enough black, they have black bands and the head looks a bit different.

Well they do have the black dots on the abdomen and yes that's what I was told was that they were "giant" mealworms or king worms he told me both!?!?! xD I put them in a separate container but with the same care of my mealies (carrots and oats) I know that superworms pupate by putting them in a film canister so I took my biggest one and did that just to see... but idk theses guys have good grip its a weird feeling kinda hurts but doesn't idk! lol they don't move around a lot and haven't touched the carrots but they are HUGE

If they pupate without separation could be Giant ones Like I had! The care is the same as with Mealworms, only they are bigger, thus need a bit more space.

I think Superworms might harm them.
