Hi, I've been thinking of starting my own mealworm farm so I can feed my chickens treats they love. However, some questions: I have an upcoming 2-wk vacation 1) Can I set it up now or after my upcoming 2-wk vacation? (will they survive 2-wk without aid?) I read/watched videos where they set it up with 3-drawer storage container. Top drawer = beetle, middle = egg, bottom = worm and pupa. Bettle lays eggs, eggs drop from top to middle (through mesh/screen). Move pupa to top and move worm from middle to bottom. 2) How do you separate pupa from worm to be moved? manual with hand one by one? Same question for worm from middle to bottom drawer 3) The worm frass. How do you separate them? 4) Does the middle drawer need any bedding/food and carrot/potato? I'll have more questions later. Thanks!
