Hello, I'm beginning research for creating a start-up starting with just Superworms. One factor I'm having difficulty finding information on is how many and how often will a female beetle lay eggs in the right conditions? Any other information on rearing superworms, such as temp. (about 80 degrees F is what I've read so far) and humidity (I've just seen "dry" [I'm looking for an actual percentage if possible] and I don't even know how reliable that source is) would be awesome. Also, I've heard microwaving works for sterilizing substrate/food, but that doesn't seem practical on a commercial scale. Are there other ways that can effectively kill parasites/mites on a larger scale than what you can fit in a microwave?
Thanks in advance!
