In Reply to: Why are my superworms dieing? posted by anson on May 02, 2003 at 14:19:56:

Apples are more for humidity than anything else. The bedding is for long term. You need to add oats, wheat bran or other
"cereal" or meal. The poor guys are coming up looking for food. If you are going to go thru them quickly you can make their bedding from oats, etc. - regular uncooked Quaker oats are fine.
Here are a couple links to care sheets:

:I bought 1000 superworms and put them in a plastic tub with alfalfa rabbit pellet bedding (like the pet store next to me uses in their bin) and some apple slices on top. the container is approx 18 x 26 and the bedding is about 3 inches deep. I put 6 apple slices on top of the bedding. It is at room temp about 74F and all the worms are coming to the top and dieing. What am I doing wrong?
