Just a quick warning, my pictures are pretty huge
Thought since I was doing a bunch of things with my Mealworms I'd post about it here. Some are weird and some just plain didn't work out well.
Potato Time-Lapse Experiment
I wanted to see how long my Colony would take to eat a whole potato. After the 6th hour I chopped up the Potato. It still took them over a week to eat it all up. Here are the pictures of the process:
Then after that I lost my patience [among other things ] and decided to just chop up the potato:
Then after that I noticed something disgusting was happening in my bin
So I made them a new bin:
Lots more ventilation:
Shortly after that I "gave up" on this Time-Lapse but I left the potato in there anyway and in a few more days they had eaten most of the insides and left the skin. I then threw the skins into my Composting System.
Super sorry about the amount of pictures.... if it's too many I can figure out a way to maybe make it separate posts or something.
