Baby Mealworms!!!

Honestly, I wasn’t really sure these guys were going to be a success. I started the bins and the mealworms morphed into adults, but then it seemed like most of them died and I couldn’t see any offspring. That’s because they are almost invisible when they’re “newborns”. Now they are a little more visible as “toddlers” and I am very happy about this. One other thing to note, I am very allergic to meal worms, it seems. I wear a dust mask to handle these guys. I seriously considered dropping them from the project, but since they’re breeding and feeding, I’ll have to adjust. We need more alternative proteins!
