You will get very quick at finding pupaes soon. I get about 200 a day now. It's best to get them asap so if you can, check them every few hours of the daytime. You will find most by the veggies.
okay, that's what I've been doing, looking every few hours.... so when the beetles are in the bowl, I put them back into the drawer with all the worms? What will the beetles lay their eggs on? I'm sorry for all the questions, but I really want to do this right....
we had such huge winds today the hens didn't want to stick around with me...lol Rae
