Eggs : Eggs are milky white, oval in shape, about 1 mm long and 0.7 mm short. Egg shells are thin and soft and are highly susceptible to damage. There is mucus on the surface of the newly laid eggs, the constant particles stick together into a group, and the surface is stuck with feed to form a feed sheath, which is not easy to find. Eggs hatch into larvae 1 week after laying .
Larvae : The larvae are about 0.5 mm long when they are hatched, milky white, difficult to identify, the larvae are 2.8~3.2 mm long, cylindrical, smooth, and gradually turn yellowish brown after 4 mm. The larvae are cylindrical in shape, with 13 segments, with yellow-brown markings at the junctions of each segment. During the growth process, they go through several times of dormancy and molting (about 3 months). The newly molted larvae are white and transparent, and after molting 8 times become a chrysalis .
Pupa: The pupa is white and translucent at first, gradually becomes yellowish-brown, and then hardens. It is 15-20 mm long, with a large head and a small tail. corners. The pupa cannot crawl, only swings and does not feed, and the pupa becomes an adult after about 10 days
Adult : The newly emerged adult is white, gradually yellowish-brown, dark-brown, and the ventral surface and the back of the elytra are brown, shiny, oval, 14-15 mm long and 6 mm wide. The worm body is divided into three parts: chest and abdomen. Adults have black elytra-like forewings, with distinct longitudinal stripes on the back of the elytra. When stationary, the elytra covers the hind wings. The hind wings are membranous with wing veins, folded vertically and horizontally under the elytra, and the male has a splicer hidden in it. Outstretched during mating; females have ovipositors hidden in them, prominent when laying eggs. Adult mealworms generally cannot fly and can only crawl on their appendages. Tenebrio molitors prefer dryness, not wetness, and light. They are suitable for living in dim environments. When adults encounter strong light, they will escape to the dark. Although active both day and night, it is more active at night. Tenebrio has strong adaptability and can grow and develop normally under the conditions of 5°C to 39°C. Tenebrio molitor enters hibernation below 5°C. The suitable growth temperature of Tenebrio molitor is about 25°C, and the food intake increases significantly at this time. Its diet is miscellaneous, eating whole grains, bran, peel, vegetable leaves, feathers, insect carcasses and various agricultural wastes . Adult worms have wings and cannot fly. Both adults and larvae can move by crawling and are very active. Tenebrio molitor has four stages in its life: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Only the adult stage has the ability to reproduce, and the adult reproduces in 2 to 4 months. The life span varies, with an average of 51 days, the shortest 2 days, and the longest 196 days. Under normal circumstances, body weight increases with each molt. Mating and spawning begin 3 to 4 days after eclosion. The average spawning period is 22 to 130 days, but more than 80% of the eggs are produced within 1 month. The average number of eggs laid by female adults is about 276. Its larvae like clusters. The adults of Tenebrio molitor have a cannibalistic habit, that is, adults eat eggs, bite larvae and pupae.
