Hello, do you offer mealworms from darkling beetles? I am traveling to Uganda and would like to start a farm for chickens.

Wondering about growing mealworms
by: Jeffery Lewis

Hi ive been trying to grow mealworms for my turtles because they love the moveing bait if u know what I mean. But as i was going thru the stages I had 3 plastic containers one was wormes one was for the pupa then I finally started to have beetles. But I noticed in my worm container that on the sides was little microscopic white dots moveing around. Severely. So i took that was bad. But I didn’t have it in the pupa or beatle containers. So I continued on. Then I noticed i had 10 worms in the beetle container. I took them out and feed them to my 3 small turtles and 1 big turtle. Now today I check on the beetles im seeing the same little microscopic white specks crawling up around the sides leaving trails in the condinsation on the sides. I would like to know what they are. And y do I have them. I really don’t like it especially when I handle the containers I feel them crawling on my hands and arms and biteing me. What are they how do I avoid having them
