 Mealworm question.

yes the reason they are being refrigerated is to keep them from metamorphasizing and that it doesnt kill them unless the temps in the fridge is too cold which is not normal youd have to have a powerful fridge cranked all the way up for it to kill them from what i understand, but again to answer your question yes they should still be alive and once left out will continue their life cycle as normal given food of course

yes only refrigerate them if you do not want them to breed. if you want them to breed keep them at 75-85.

stick ’em in some oatmeal outside the fridge. They’ll turn into beetles and lay MEELIONS of eggs.
