Kit Design: This mealworm tower is made from plastic that the insects cannot climb and has 3 tiers. The top trey is meshed to sort the worms/eggs from the beetles automatically. This is important as the beetles can eat the eggs. The eggs will fall threw the mesh and hatch in the lower draw allowing you to easily gather mealworms to be fed.The insects will not escape from this farm due the design and the insects inability to climb plastic. Key Features: -Save time and effort going to stores weekly for live food/ baits -Very little to no smell -Durable compact design -Saves money on feeding pets -Healthy nutritious live food for your pets -Have easy access to the right size insect’s -Selectively breed your own mealworms for bigger/smaller worms -Fun and educational -Entertainment from observing and feeding the insects -Self sorting-Low maintenance Directions for use: Simply put a good layer of Bran (included) with some slices of cucumber/tomato/potato/carrot for moisture into the top and middle trey and then add the Darkling beetles to the top trey. The eggs layed by the beetles will fall threw the mesh and hatch in the lower trey.Darkling beetles can live for up to 8 weeks and lay 100s of eggs. You can make food bowls and hides out of the clay provided. Add the mealworms to the middle trey with some oats and slices of cucumber/tomato/potato/carrot for moisture. The mealworms will pupae and hatch into beetles with a week or 2. mealworm eggs will hatch and grow to full size in around 4 weeks if kept at room temperature (optimal is 26-30oc, room temp is around 21oc) and given a good diet (please see website blog and mealworm insectpedia page for diet info).Add the pupa (They look like white aliens) to the bottom bin. Pupa cannot move(apart from wiggle) or eat. After about 10 days the pupa will hatch into beetles and can then be transferred to the top trey to begin breeding and laying eggs. Maintance: Cleaning the colony is easy and hassle free just pour the continence of one of the treys into a bag and sieve away the frass. You may also sieve away small mealworms and eggs so i would recommend rotating the 2 bottom treys and sieving every 3 weeks giving time for the eggs to hatch and mealworms to grow big enoth not to fall threw the sieve. Or you could sieve the eggs and mealworm hatchlings with the frass and use another method to separate them. Beetles, pupa and mealworms are all safe to handle and consume by pets or even humans!
