acceptable mealworm substrate

I'm trying to get my ducks (worms) in a row before i order our mealworms, is wheat bran and soy meal okay for substrate or do I need more?


  • Hi VickyBlood, - Wheat bran all by itself is enough for mealworms to develop & breed, you do not need to spend money on a soy meal ingredient.

  • thank you so much! now to find a good cheap source of it

  • Hi Vicky, if you haven't already, I recommend an animal feed store like Southern States. They sell a 50lb bag for $13
