10 x Alphitobius diaperinus Beetles per starter colony
Great for roach bins or feeder colonies
These little beetles and lesser meal worm larvae are effective at consuming undigested food particles and even excrement created by feeder insects in feeder colony enclosures, tubs and bins.
They will also breed inside your feeder colonies starting with eggs which hatch in to lesser meal worm larvae, a tough little meal worm with strong jaws that can chew hard, so don’t feed them to smaller tarantulas as they may well harm them. Once they have grown past the meal worm stage, they will turn to pupa that will eventually hatch in to the adult beetle.
WARNING: Strictly keep them in your feeder enclosures. Don’t let them escape by making sure the sides of your feeder colony enclosures are solid plastic or glass which they can not climb – and not full of holes because the lesser meal worm larvae are quite thin and will escape through the holes. Their jaws can chew through carpets, mouse pads and other soft materials with ease, so you don’t want them all around your house.
