Superworms are easy to keep
For 500 or less use a shoe box size plastic container filled
half way with Wheat Bran, if your going to keep more than that
use a sweater box size plastic container filled 2- 3rds full
with Wheat Bran, or 3 inches from the top of the container.
When you buy the containers they will have lids, drill holes or
cut out a portion of the lid and then silicone some screen to
the inside of the lid this will keep the containers from
getting moist and becoming moldy, It will also keep moths and
other pests out of your supply of worms.
Superworms like it warm! My many years of raising insects have
shown me that 70 to 85 degrees is perfect for superworms.
Water for the worms should be in the form of Romaine Lettuce
leaves spread over the surface of the Wheat Bran.
You can add some Worm Chow* for added nutrients sprinkled on
the surface of the Wheat Bran.
REMEMBER! Don’t refrigerate Superworms, it will kill them.
If you wish to gut load your worms, The best way I have found
Is to place the worms in a jar with Fish Flakes and a piece of
lettuce over night, the Worm Chow* works real good for gut
When the worms have eaten most of the bran, pick out any worms
in the box and replace it with new bran.
