    "What breed or gender is this." to have them sorted out.

    Hi! Welcome to your new adventure!

    There was a person on here not to long ago asking about a strange hairy beetle they found in their mealworm colony. I know when you see them they are eating some type of fungus but should you throw away dirt and make a new colony?

    See you been here not so long and we already need your help! Lol

    See thread below

    Welcome aboard! This is a great place to learn about all sorts of things. I'm in a tiny house trying to learn sustainable living as well. I bet we can learn a ton from each other
