 Bought mealworms and found two fuzzy black worms with them. O.O HELP

I found these really weird worms in with my mealworms. O.O it’s creeping me out. I want to feed it to something, but I’m afraid it’s toxic. Picture coming

I do not know the name of these guys but they are put with crickets also they just clean up the poop that is pooped all over their enclosers. They are cleaners they eat poop and dead mealworms or crickets. They are harmless.

Hello,

Those are more than likely Dermestid Beetles. They are decomposers. They are pretty harmless. Prior to starting our insect farm we used to find these guys a lot in the superworms we bought from another company. They are more annoying than anything else.
