Mealworms Anyone?

Our mealworms arrived today!  Tiny little guys aren’t they?

100_2846As you can see below, the kids, and the spouse were VERY interested in this new little project. 

100_2847100_2849Next is a view from the top.  Looks like a pile of sawdust, doesn’t it?   It’s actually bran, and mealworms.  I need to buy more bran and fresh carrots this week to feed the little darlings.  One nickel sized carrot round should feed them for several days. There are roughly 25 little creatures in there (eeeeeww).

100_2844 We’ll be monitoring the little guys on a daily basis.  Feeding and cleaning as necessary and waiting for them to turn into Darkling Beetles.

Pin It!
