Re: mealworms -- how many, how often?

Joan, do you have a preference to where you get your mealworms. Everytime I look in the petstore, they smell and half are dead. I did get some for a bait shop one time, the small ones. But, I wasn't sure if that was a great idea. They where very healthy and lively.
