[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]
I have had a few of these show up in my redrunner bin the last few months:
The biggest problem is they seem to be reproducing and at a faster rate than my red runners... and are beginning to get mixed in with my feeding batches.
My biggest question, what are they and are they dangerous for my Beardie(about 17" now) to eat?
Onto the invaders, they are quite a bit smaller than my redrunners, they can fly. They start in a larva stage. They seem to prefer to hide in the substrate vs egg cartons..
A few larva:
The larva are fuzzy and have legs and are fairly quick compared to supers/meal worms or pheonix/calci worms.
Any help would be great! Feel free to ask for more pictures!
If it helps, I live in Oregon and I don't know where they came from so could be native.
