 Superworms

Aren’t Firebellies a little small for supers? I would go with regular mealworms.

Use a substrate of bran, this serves as food. Use sliced potato on the top for water. If you want to breed them keep them in a warm area and wait for them to pupate. Once they do this, move them to another container with bran. They will then turn into beetles. They will now begin to breed. When you have quite a few beetles, it is recommended to move them to a new container at least every 7 days or they will begin to eat the eggs they have laid. They live for about 3 months as beetles I believe. Just don’t forget to keep sliced potatoes in all of the bins.

They can be kept in plastic shoe or sweater boxes with no lids.

Also, regular mealworms breed faster than the supers. I hope this helps.
