I wonder if anyone can help me. I use wheat bran and semi-crushed oats for substrate- bought from the local mill at £9.00 per 20kilo bag. Since I have a huge surplus of mealworms I am advertising in the local shop window. My problem is in sifting out the oat husks. For the moment I put in folded newspaper for the stock to crawl into then transfer to a container of wheat bran, then I can sell them clean. This isn't ideal, so I am wondering if I can do away with the oats altogether and provide future stock with just wheat bran. Would this be detrimental to my stock and, if so, why?
