I never did get why people are with this change the bedding every 2 weeks stuff. I just throw my beetles into a container with something [oats] and let them at it. When all the beetles have died I either add more beetles and oats or I start a new container. I get a lot of Mealworms that way. Or with my FTS.

I haven't changed the substrate I just don't want my beetles to eat my new babies xD so I got told to transfer them but Im too lazy so ill keep them there till I see new ones xD

Cinnamon btw had her first beetle since her molt and she went crazy she ate 3 in one sitting (I don't do often but she never ate so I thought to give her some extra)

Right now I have two containers. I started with one and ended up with a ton of adults. Let them romp for a month or so. Then I removed all the adults and put them into a fresh enclosure. Planning on getting a few more to keep rotating the adults as they go through the oats pretty quickly.

It seems like they don't all hatch out at once, because i'm starting to see more tiny babies in my colony again.
