Superworm farm

Postby BeardedDragonSteve » Thu Jul 09, 2020 9:07 am

I have not posted in forever, but because Smaug is getting bigger now, I have been doing some research on how to make a superworm farm, do you guys have any advice?

I've grown supers in a plastic tub full of oats with some cardboard tubes on top and fresh carrots or other vegetable on top of the substrate changed out every other day or so. This gives them some hydration. Other than that, I just let them be. I don't offer them as food very often so more recently I just let them live in my dubia enclosure as cleanup crew. I don't feed these off but they just kind of live in the frass and keep the roach tank in good shape. For feeders, it's best to keep their conditions as sanitary as possible.

Thats good. How many beetles are you trying to get? The more you start with, the quicker your farm will start producing.

I would aim for a minimum of a dozen beetles. I usually double that.
