 How long?

Well i just started trying to breed mealworms and after about one and a week and a half some mealworms are starting to turn into pupae. how long will it be until the pupea turns into a beetle?

A few days, mebbe a week, depending on how warm they are. The warmer they are, the faster the whole process of metamoprhosis happens.

ok thank you. where the mealworms are located it stays anywhere from 65-70 degrees at this time of year. approximately how long do you think it will be until the pupae turns into a beetle?
