I've had beetles for weeks now, and still no eggs. I know it can take them time to mature, but by now you would think I'd see eggs or tiny larvae under the beetles tray. Are they shy?
My first beetle switch tray post harvest seems very quiet...but over the last few days I seem to have had a beetle explosion! I'm expecting a lot more after the next switch
My first tray switch = 0 baby worms
Second tray switch (yesterday) = some baby worms but not loads
I will wait and see how the second tray switch develops as there could be lots of eggs that I cannot see by eye.
same here, after a week and a half I can still barely see anything in the first tray I switched. I moved the beetle tray again last night though and there are certainly a few baby mealworm in the new tray following the recent beetle explosion. With the huge number of mealworms I seem to have in trays 3 & 4 compared to what was in the first 2 trays I'm wondering if all the beetles will fit soon!
first tray switch was empty.
second tray switch resulted in a few small worms
third tray switch resulted in some more and larger worms.
fourth tray switch even more worms.
I've now put all living worms from the starter kid into the first tray in order to create more beetles.
