 Adult mealworm beetles fly?

i was reading on a web site about mealworms as beetles they fly. I dont think i was reading something right because no one has mentioned that their beetles could fly. IF they do, please let me know so i can get a lid for my mealworms before they turn into beetles.
Here is where i read that Entomology/mealworm

Take one and put it on the end of your index finger...then raise your finger. It will glide off your finger and land on the nearest object. Note that Ive only seen this happen twice...
