I'm loving the lettuce it doesn't mold and they love it xD My mealies are completely ignoring the cricket things. Oh well.

You should post pics of yours. :3 I feel like we all over look meal worm care but it's important to get it right so we're feeding our little hedgies healthy yucky mealies.

Excess meal worms....what to do with them?

My first batch of babies are now microscopic to 1/4 inch big and it looks like a zillion of them. I changed my beetles over to a new bin today too cause there were a bunch of new babes in with them so I would assume about the same amount, now x 2. So within a mth or so will have a TON of adult mealies. My beetles are now 100+ egg layers

Do you share with others? Put in the fridge? What?

I only have one hedgie that eats 4-6 a day!

You can put them out in a bird feeder for the birds. Or advertise them on kijiji for anyone else with a hedgehog or reptile.

Of course, you could always get more hedgies.

They don't seem to grow very quickly ...when they get big tho there will be a ton. I'm not a fan of birds cause I'm a night owl so they wake me too early they already like my covered dog run too and crap in there lol.

I realized they mail well tho so will send some down Island to Ille from this board for her Atilla the Huff and Sir Huffalump...and send some to the small animal rescue to distribute among their hedgie foster homes Should be perfectly plump treats just before Xmas
