My pleasure! That's the main reason why we went with mealworms instead of black soldier flies. Mealworms are very home friendly. When we were designing the Hive, we balanced their natural habitat and the home environment.
Mealworms prefer the following habitat
- rubbing on each other's skin for better growth
- living in a condensed space
- space efficient
- conversation piece
- guest welcoming
For all the above qualities, that's why the Hive have enclosed layers that are built vertically. From the choice of materials to the ridges on the metal plate, we have to carefully select and test each parameter to ensure that the mealworms would be comfortable. Further, allowing you to enjoy co-habitating in the same space.
