ES_WIKIPEDIA – Tenebrio molitor.

En libertad los gusanos de la harina se encuentran entre piedras y troncos o en almacenes de grano, y se consideran una plaga para las producciones de grano. Como descomponedores se pueden alimentar de insectos muertos o heces, aparte plantas, semillas y hojas caídas. Ciclo biológico[editar] Larvas[editar] Gusanos de la harina en un contenedor de salvado. La larva, el gusano de la harina propiamente dicho, es comúnmente utilizada como alimento vivo en mascotas exóticas insectívoras como reptiles, aves y hormigas. Esta larva es también comestible para el ser humano, debido a su enorme cantidad de proteínas, las cuales pueden servir para dos cosas; bajar de peso y como esteroide natural.

A las larvas les gusta la oscuridad y estar sujetas a algún objeto. La pupa es blanca en un principio y se irá tornando más marrón conforme vaya madurando.

CALIFORNIA AGRICULTURE - MARS 1994 - Temperature affects lesser mealworm populations in turkey brooder houses

In 1991, turkey ranked 17th among all California commodities, with a farm market value of $241 million. California was third in the nation in turkey production, with 29 million birds raised. The lesser mealworm, Alphitobius diaperinus (Panzer), is an important insect pest associated with turkey production. It was first detected in California poultry houses approximately 35 years ago. The number of affected facilities and the severity of infestation has increased over the years. The lesser mealworm has become a major pest with the advent of large, modern brooding complexes in the turkey and broiler industries.

In California, turkey growers also fear the lesser mealworm for its ability to be a vector of poultry diseases and parasites. Life cycle of the lesser mealworm. WIKIPEDIA – Mealworm. Reproduction The mealworm beetle breeds prolifically.

WIKIPEDIA – Mealworm.

Mating is a three step process, the male chasing the female, mounting her and inserting his aedeagus, and injecting a sperm packet. Within a few days the female burrows into soft ground and lays about 500 eggs. After four to 19 days the eggs hatch. Many predators target the eggs, including reptiles. During the larval stage, the mealworm feeds on vegetation and dead insects and periodically molts.

Relationship with humans Tenebrio molitor is often used for biological research. As pests Mealworms have generally been considered pests, because their larvae feed on stored grains. As food A Canapé prepared with mealworm Mealworms are edible for humans. Mealworms have been incorporated into tequila-flavored novelty candies. Mealworms are typically used as a pet food for captive reptiles, fish, and birds. They are commercially available in bulk and are sold in containers of bran or oatmeal.

WIKIPEDIA – Tenebrio molitor.

Il est capable de vivre dans des denrées stockées très sèches, notamment dans la farine, d'où son nom de meunier. C'est un insecte cosmopolite, probablement d'origine européenne, mais disséminé aux quatre coins du monde depuis longtemps, à cause des échanges commerciaux de denrées alimentaires dont il est friand. Description[modifier | modifier le code] Biologie[modifier | modifier le code] Reproduction et développement[modifier | modifier le code] Ver de farine venant de muer (blanc), près de son ancienne cuticule froissée ou exuvie et une autre larve de couleur sombre, avant la mue. Le ténébrion se reproduit relativement vite : le cycle de développement complet s'effectue en deux à trois mois, si les conditions sont favorables (25 à 27 °C), mais peut prendre une année dans la nature. Le nombre de stades larvaires, séparés par des mues, est variable : un minimum de 8, un maximum pouvant dépasser 20. Forme juvénile rousse. Observation scientifique.
