THE EDIBLE MEALWORMS, FAST AND EASY TO BREED.
If by any chance, you decide to start your own insect rearing for human consumption, you should definitely start with edible mealworms.
Mealworms are insects following the same development as butterflies, which means that larvae don’t look like adults and occur a complete metamorphosis of their body. As a matter of fact, once adults, mealworms become small beetles. This stage of development is called cocoons for butterflies and nymphs for beetles. Edible mealworm is ready-to-eat before this cocoon stage when still at the larval stage. If you start your own insects rearing, you will be able to watch all the life cycle of these funny edible mealworms. You won’t need much time and care, it’s really simple and ludic!
