I had been getting excessive moisture in my mealworm tub so yesterday morning I removed a few potato halves, replaced the paper bags with paper towels and put the tub outside in the sun. Then I forgot all about it. Last night about 10PM I remembered it and got out of bed and brought it in. I just looked inside and everything is dead. My beetles, my pupas, my larvae--- everything! I'm guessing I roasted them in the sun. Doh! Poor little guys Back to the drawing board as soon as I order up another couple thousand online. I had been collecting worms as they grew for a few weeks so I probably still came out ahead of what pet shop prices would have set me back for that many. I'm just bummed because they were probably just ready to start hatching eggs. Can I feed the dead to the chickens?
