Hello Jeff. I chose to begin with mealworms after researching other species (ants, termites, locusts, cockroaches) for a few different reasons. For starters, they appear to be fairly simple to maintain. Darkling beetles do not seem to be as big of a pest threat, should they happen to break loose from their housing. Meal worms are easy to come by, as they are already a standard food for various pets and livestock. I was able to find MUCH more information on raising mealworms than any other species. I must apologize for delay in response to your query. I only just noticed the notification and am new to online forums. -Michael

    Hi badger12, I also noticed my meal worms piling up in the corners - but only the two back ones which are the darkest spots... could that be why? Or... do they just like a group hug?

    I read your post and you are ahead of me in your endeavors. I am curious why you chose to start with meal worms? Thanks Jeff
