PostSubject: How to sort out Poop   Thu Nov 15, 2012 8:27 pm

I bought 5000 mealworms about 6 months ago and put them into 2 12 quart plastic sweater boxes. I've been adding wheat bran as needed but the powdery stuff in the bottom, which I assume is poop, is up to the top of the box leaving no room to add more food. I don't want to discard it as I'm sure it is loaded with eggs. What should I do? I have transfered most of the worms to a new clean bin.
Thanks for any info.
Gail

Usually the eggs will stick to the substrate as they are sticky (unlike the poop which is small, round and dry). So, if you use a fine sieve to remove the mealworm castings, you hopefully won't sacrifice many eggs in the process.
