Update day 13 of the mealworm diet case study experiment. In this update we have a pupa in tub A and lots more sheds in tub A vs tub B!
This is strong evedence that diet plays a key role in breeding mealworms!
Tub A is also nearly 6g heavyer than tub B!
This week i will be feeding tub A wheat bran apple, grapes, calcium powder and egg powder. Tub B will be fed wheat bran and carrot. Both tubs will get fed same weighs.
Note: the insects are kept in large drawers and put in tubs only to weigh. I will take the pupa out of tub A to keep it safe from being nibbled on and put it back in on ned weighing day in 5 days.
