marcofoo Same as Elt. After first harvest I have only few worms. But I have 20-30 beetles from previous plastic boxes (worms from pet shop). Btw. I put some flour, breadcumbs to beetle inline tray, it fall down under beetle inline tray and create thin layer for eggs and small worms. After 18 days I am adding only carrot, and when they eat this flour/breadcrumbs, I add another.
Btw. I have already 3 layers (3 harvesting) with my own babies. But amount of worms is not high as I expected 🙂 And interesting is ,, that after 60 days I found in layer3 .. very big worms and very very small too.. Difference is too big 🙂. Maybe I am doing something wrong. So my mission is, increase amount of beetles to recommended maximum (1000), and found way how to decrease death of beetles in my case, increase production of eggs, and make conditions to have similiar worm size in layer.
That's why I am programming new firmware. But it needs lot of testing and more users to play with it. I still want to see my Hive in max. production, happy beetles and worms (min.death of beetles&worms).
