    Hi all,
    I've been wondering why we feed carrots or other water source to mealworms, when they can proliferate in grain silos etc without water.
    Anyone?
    thanks,Jacqui

    So they don't cannabalize each other for moisture.

    My husband had spilt grain on his bedroom floor, and I have never seen such healthy large mealworms before!
    Am trying grain in some of my containers, so will try to ascertain numbers of worms in comparison to those with carrots. thanks
