I’ve gone through the whole life cycle exept for eggs. I’ve had the beatles for 1-2 months and see no eggs or babies!? plenty of beatles though. I have oats as substrate and 4 carrots a week. they are in a big sterilite tub. WTH

Lol... I had the same problem as you a couple of months ago when I first started to bread in december... tones of beatles....It will take any where from 1 month to 2 months for the eggs to hatch.. then count on another month for them to grow to feeding size. I have a couple of different containers on the go at once... ususally once i start to see baby mealworms i will move the beatles to new substrate and start to feed the baby mealworms cricket gutload along with potatoes... it works pretty well...

Hope this helps...
