    Spectral New Egg

    Oct 1, 2014
    Good evening,

    I took an interest in raising some meal worms and now have a question I have not located an answer for as yet. I have three containers, one for worms, one for pupae, and one for beetles.
    I have pupae galore, most likely several dozen and sometimes find a dozen more a day in the worm container (plastic bins). Is this normal?

    I have roughly 12-18 beetles in another bin (also plastic), but have yet to see anything resembling a young worm, and some of these beetles have been in this bin for about a month. Again, is this normal?

    Looking for your suggestions/recommendations and links to threads.

    Still learning with only one chicken out of four laying eggs.
