Isolated and refined by Kim and (mostly) Christine Wismann.

These giant mealworms are common mealworms selected for gigantic size, not superworms. There is no growth hormone, special diet, or genetic modification other than selective breeding. Named to commemorate Kim and Christine Wismann for their superb work creating this line. **Note- Kim says Christine is the master pupa picker, so give more credit her way where due!
