Mealworms should be given food like carrots, potatoes, apple. Make sure you take them out after a day or two before they go moldy. Also a cuttle bone is great to put in the mealie farm. The mealworms will tunnel into it and also it gives them calcium.

You can use oatmeal or bran for them and I used to use whole wheat oatmeal. Usually a layer an inch or two works well.

So change the fruit/veggie every couple of days and put new oatmeal once a week or something?
