    Did you check to see how pupa you have? That will tell you how many beetle you will have in the future.Cold temperature will slow them down from turning into beetles.

    didnt know you raised meal worms iv never tried them they look like killer BG bait and seems like an easier project than doing nightcrawlers

    I just received a new batch of 1000 mealworms today.I finished off my originals after 10 years,not that I needed to restart,but I’m delving into a different housing set up,and figured to start over with a new colony.

    From the pic it appears you are well on the way to a healthy colony.

    I was just given a start of meal worms today. I didnít get much instructions with them, so I appreciate this post.

    I use this Guy's method, and it has worked flawlessly for past 7 years.
