    Giant mealworms are just mealworms ( Tenebrio molitor) that are fed steroids, not real superworms.(Superworms ((Zophobas morio)) can't go in the fridge) Mealworms are high in fat and not good for a regular diet but used as a treat

    I remember you said AGES ago you might have a crack at it. Just been biding my time... I'll give it ago once we get near the end of winter, it's too insane here at the moment. Feels like -5.9 yesterday, jeez I hate cold winters.

    Winter is a bad time to start a new colony of anything, I just put a heat mat under my superworms and the beetles to keep them active even though most people say room temps are fine. But it was 4C here on Friday morning and I was worried they'd all die and I'd have to start again, that little 7W heat mat has worked wonders.

    What is your indoor temps? Heat mats can't hurt. I just came out of the Woodies shed and it was 26 deg air temp and one tub thermostat was showing 33 deg. The tubs not on heat benefit from the collective radiant heat.

    My supers are just in the pantry and seem to be good. The BSFL are up on The Stooges enclosure, I doubt it'll get cool enough to kill them but should be on par with the temp to just stop them turning. Much to Vandals disgust, he likes his flies better than the grubs.

    Ren BSF need soil to pupate. You would buy them in the pre pupae stage so should be good. Although it is going to be freezing out your way in the morning. Getting cold here tonight on the Gold Coast
