I think I spend as much time, if not more, with the mealworms than I did with the incubator. More action and daily activities that one can see. ----- My "Q". Did I wait too long and loose a lot of the pupa to hungry larva? Yesterday I saw several pupa laying on top, and so today went out to separate them into their own container. Could not find one on top. Were they eaten? ---- I brushed about a 1/4 inch off the top and started finding several. Are these the ones I saw yesterday, or some that were always down there? Yes, as you can tell, this is my first experience with these critters.
