There is a bunch of us that rescue animals and i started breeding worms cause i rescued a marmoset and some tenrecs. I wish the super worms were as easy to breed.

I never realized raising mealworms would be so easy! I am going to try your method, and have some happy hens, or, hens that pretend to love me!

I was buying them but I quickly realized that the price was adding up versus just raising them myselves. This is probably the best tutorial I have found so Ijust wanted to give a testimonial here and say that this is a great DIY setup. Thanks so much.

You said that the beetles have a very short life span. Does that mean you have to pick out the dead beetles or does nature take over and they eat their dead? Or are the beetles part of the yummies fed to the chickens?

My main question is, what do you do with the dead beetles.

Thanks

I ordered from him based on your recommendation, he charged my Paypal, the site said the product was out of stock, I never heard from them again despite numerous emails. I’m hoping Paypal will refund me. I did some investigating and he has done the same to many other people on the internet- and the BBB gives him an F rating.

The last stage of the meal worms life cycle is the beetle. The will mate, lay eggs, and die. Shouldn’t be much longer before you start seeing those beetles 🙂

I recently purchased 1000 mealworms online to raise for my backyard chickens. So far so good, EXCEPT… no beetles yet. Lots of Pupas, but nothing is happening. Could I be doing something wrong?
