Hi --

So I'm trying to start breeding my own mealworms and am having some issues. I've tried google and everyone keeps saying how easy it is..

Once my larvae turn to pupai or whatever they don't seem to make it to the beetle stage..

They'll turn into a half beetle and just sit on their back until they die.

I'm using wheat bran bedding and putting the pupai in a seperate container..

I've been buying the mealworms from Ghanns... I read somewhere where some people spray the worms so they don't mutate correctly..

Any ideas?
