SINCE 1981!

This is not a decision that I have taken lightly, as the only commercial breeder in England, I have been left with no choice but to stop selling mealworms, so that the worm production can catch up and be taken off at the right sizes. I have also been unable to purchase any from our European counterparts as they are having problems too.

During the last five weeks, we have had many problems, some through human error which has devastated three weeks of production, which in turn depleted our refrigerated stock within 14 days. The increase in sales due to other companies not having stock, which has caused problems, we have had to take off worms that should normally have been taken off for sales nearly a week later.

There are three species of crickets and locust available if you need to feed your animals.

I'm sorry for the problems that this may cause you all.
