You say the pupa turn brown? That is a sign that they will hatch into beetles soon, not that they are dead. They are dead when they become a black color. I doubt anyone will ship you their beetles when they are trying to raise them and baby mealworms. Best way, buy at least 1000 mealworms or 1500, or 2000, if you like, and go from there. There are always going to be deaths, but plenty enough will survive. Google "mealworm care sheet, and you will find tons of care sheets and opinions on how to raise them properly so they hatch and become beetles. It only takes about a few weeks for beetles to appear. I know you said not to say to let them become pupa then to beetle, but that is really the best way you will get beetles. Here is a pic of my mealworm care, and so far I have successfully found baby mealworms, so maybe these pics will give you some ideas. Just be patient with them; they will become pupa and then beetles if you are. Good luck anyway.

Beetle/pupa box on left, mealworm box on the right.

lol I COULD but I have NO Idea how mealworm beetles would be shipped and IF the USPS or dhl would ship them they might consider them pests.I will look into it and get back.

iíll sell ya some beetles PM me if you still want some, but you do realize shipping is expensive right?í
itíd be easier and less costly to just be patient and let yours pupate on their own, try keeping them warmer if itís taking to long, the warmer and more well fed they are the quicker they will turn

I just went to my pet store and asked for the beetles. I got over 100 for free. I also have superworms and now i have over 1000 baby mealworms and superworms.
I found when the mealworms turn into pupas you need to remove them into a continer. the other mealworms that havent change yet will eat the pupas. Once everyone is beetles put them together

It is so easy to breed Meal worms, you just need to give them some time, you shouldnít buy them when you can just get 10 Meal worms and then when they become beetles you can end up with 50 baby meal worms!
