    Naturally where are mealworms typically found? I'd rather find my bait than buy it?

    Dude, I don't think you can find mealworms in the wild. They are a larval form of somekind of fly!:crazy: I once had a can of them and forgot them in the back on my Jeep. At the end of the summer cleaning out my truck, I found the can a opend it and found HUGE:eek:oooh: dead flies. Almost something out of a movie!

    You wont find them in the wild unless you live on a farm. Here is a link to an education on how to raise them though.

    Hope this helps!!! I have dabbled at raising a lot of critters and bait over the years.

    I usually order my meal worms when I order my crickets from Cricketsdirect.They have them and their not very exspensive.
