    Hey guys,
    I watched some videos about how frequent people feed veggies to their mealworms. And some say occasionally, so my guess would be like a piece of carrot for two weeks or even longer? Some say replace the old ones when you realized it's all dried out. And some say always provide them fresh veggies or replace the old ones as long as you have fresh ones. So I wonder what frequencies are the best to raise them. Thanks.

    Veggies provide moisture to mealworms. That’s it.

    Carrots tend to be great bc they don’t tend to mold-they just dry out. Potatoes and apples have a higher tendency to mold.

    Seems that carrots need to be replaced weekly. But if you live in a drier climate, maybe sooner.
