Well I decided and somehow able to fit both the cricket and the melworm container on 2 banana boxes that are on a heater (they have holes so heat can flow under the bins) and idk 5 mins after it got to hot for us I looked inside my mealworm bin and I found this happening

It's a little too hot then they are all flocking to the moisture to get cooler and prevent themselves from dehydrating.

That sounds better, to be honest I'd rather wait a few extra weeks for my mealworms to grow then kill them all by accident.

Another question [sorry Razz] do you plan to move the beetles to a brand new setup or keep them together?

Nice amount of beetles, I hate the part your at though, you have to wait a while before the babies hatch and grow to size.

I'm doing very well with my Mealworm Empire. Reaching the 200+ beetle mark as well as probably 400+ Mealworms and tons of tiny babies.

Good luck with the move and such Smile Nice to hear from you Very Happy
