Innovation in the Production of Tenebrio molitor Eggs

If you have ever explored the exciting world of insect breeding, you may have heard of Tenebrio molitor, better known as the mealworm. These tiny insects are gaining ground in the food and livestock industry, and their demand is constantly growing.

Protiberia is a leader in the breeding and production of these insects, and our innovative method is taking the production of eggs of Tenebrio molitor to a whole new level. What is the secret? At Protiberia we offer high quality colonies of eggs of Tenebrio molitor to insect breeding farms, eliminating the need to dedicate part of the process to the reproduction of these insects to maintain their colonies.

What is Tenebrio molitor and why is it so important?

Tenebrio molitor is an insect that belongs to the family of beetles. Its life cycle consists of four stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult. The larva is the one known as the mealworm, and it is the one that is mainly used for food and livestock purposes.

Tenebrio molitor has several advantages that make it a very valuable resource. Some of them are:

  • It is rich in protein, fat, minerals and vitamins, which makes it a very nutritious food for both humans and animals.
  • It has a high yield per unit area, as it can be bred in small spaces and with few resources.
  • It has a low environmental impact, as it consumes less water and emits less greenhouse gases than other sources of animal protein.
  • It has a high potential for the use of organic waste, as it can feed on agricultural and industrial by-products.”

How does Protiberia’s innovative method work?

The reproduction of these insects can be challenging and requires specialized knowledge. Protiberia has solved this problem by providing eggs of Tenebrio molitor to insect breeding farms. This means that the farms can focus on the fattening process, eliminating the complexity of breeding and reproducing the insects.

The eggs of Tenebrio molitor from Protiberia are of high quality and ready to hatch, which saves time and resources to the farms and ensures a continuous supply.

Protiberia’s innovative method is based on the following steps:

  1. We select the best breeding colonies of Tenebrio molitor, taking into account their genetics, health and productivity.
  2. We control the environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, light) and food (quality, quantity, frequency) to optimize the laying of eggs.
  3. We collect the eggs carefully and send them to the requesting farms, along with detailed instructions for their proper care.
