I have been breeding mealworms for several years and always have microwaved the wheat bran prior to letting my beetles lay eggs in it. I recently moved my mealworm Farm into the garage and decided I didn't need to microwave the wheat bran anymore because I thought the moths could just fly away. I had no idea that they had this life stage i.e. tiny white worms. Now I am finding the larvae of these moths in the wheat bran, where all of my eggs and tiny baby mealworms are (all together). Will these larvae eat the mealworm eggs and/or baby mealworms, disturbing their growth? Or, will they just eat the potatoes and wheat bran along with the mealworm babies? If I need to get them out of each drawer, how would I do that and not kill the eggs and baby mealworms?
I will NEVER not microwave the wheat bran again!
Thank you for ANY advice anyone may have!
