I'm now using a 2ft x 1-1/2 ft x 6 inch storage container. With the substrate about 3 to 4 inches deep right now. I must be okay as I haven't had any die yet. ((KNOCK ON WOOD!))

It wasn't until November that any of the first 2 to 3 dozen beetles began to die. I just replace them as I need them. With only 2 to 3 dozen beetles I already have more than enough to feed 9 good eaters until brumation time again next year. And the beetles are still breeding so I plan on keeping the cycle up as it is so nice not to have to buy feeders. I have a Turk colony or 2 also what a releif on Frank's wallet and great for baby beardies. :wink:
I don't know if you've seen my pic's or not but if you'd like to take a look here's a link.
I'll be posting some updated pic's now that I got a new camera as I have much more and larger now.
I really don't think you will bother them that much if your just looking in on them and not shaking them around.Dakotachristy84":5572b said:when you are waiting for the superworms to morph do you still check on them every day? will that delay them from morphing by bothering them so much? i've checked on mine a couple of times and one or 2 of them uncurl.
