I surprised my wife with 5,000 mealworms…


A little over a week ago, we built our first mealworm farm. Only to see it fail with slow-moving and dead mealworms. So we got serious... we bought a bunch of mealworms online.

We order 5,000 mealworms and 1,000 darkling beetles on eBay from a mealworm farm in Oregon and they arrived! Along with unboxing all of the bugs, I thought I'd surprise Becky with it all and see what she thought.

These mealworms will be used to produce beetles, which will, in turn, produce more mealworms that we can feed our chickens to offset some of our chicken feed costs.
