no dont feed them they can do damage just throw them away if you keep mealies in the fridge it will slow down the process of turning but i believe they loose some nutrional value if you do that
please correct me nicely if im wrong
silly question time now but do beetles lay eggs or just give birth to live worms? Ive got some morio beetles that im hoping will breed. their tub kind of smells now but i dont want to risk cleaning it all out incase im accidently throwing away eggs :?
one more silly question :lol: will the beetles eat their own eggs or is it safe to leave the beetles in and remove the worms when they have hatched? Ive had these beetles in a large butty box for ages now and Ive not seen any eggs or worms yet. I think I must have kept a trio of either all females or all males
i wait till i can see atleast 1 small worm then i take the bettles out it does take time for the worms to hatch i think its something silly like a month can be more i put about 30-40 bettles into a cricket tub with ready-brek as a substrate and i spray the sides with water every couple of days and i feed thekm on mealie diet plus and cabbage
