My beetles are "hatching"... woohooo for me... The bin with the small worms started hatching out beetles one at a time here and there.. The bin with the larger worms all turned into the pupua thingys all at once.. most of them anyway.. Then just a bit ago I checked on them and there were big brown beetles walking around..
Worms are ok.. the beetles are giving me the creepy crawlys.. Hopefully I can get past that..
How long after they turn into beetles will the beetles lay eggs??
Also.. the first bin is of smaller worms, so the beetles are smaller... Obviously, they will lay smaller eggs.... Will the worms that come out of this also be and stay smaller?? how do I get them to grow to a better size before they turn into the alien looking things??
Personaly, im thinking of just canning the small worm bin and just going with the larger ones...
At first the beetles bothered me too but I bit the bullet and picked up a newly hatched white one thinking it was the most 'innocent' of them, and realized they actually tickle the palm of my hand. Now they dont bother me at all. And I hate bugs in my house! Now, these dont bother me at all in here.
