Default Re: Meal Worm Care?

Ah, sifting is a better idea! I'll have to remember that for next time. I just clean it out when it looks like the frass is overcoming the bedding. The bin I cleaned out last night didn't really have any bedding in it since I got the whole container with mealworms, etc. in it from someone I know. So it was easiest to pick the mealies out with tweezers since all the gross stuff (dead mealies, beetles, etc.) was as big as the live mealies. It took maybe around half an hour, but I don't have more than maybe 200 mealworms in the container. The orange cricket things could probably work for mealies too, you could always try it! Carrots are just easier for me to get.
