are you giving veggies for moisture? IF they don't have any moist food they seem to be more cannibalistic than what they normally are. I gave up on supers because it seemed that the only things that got to eat them were the other supers! LOL!

Although, I have had some escapees establish a colony in my MHD vivarium I see an occasional beetle walking around and when I take out the water pan I see them quickly burrow into the substrate. I am wondering if they might be easier to raise in a Forrest type bedding since that is their native environment and them take what you need to feed and put in a good gutload before feeding to your critters.

I have never seen this recommended but it seem the only way I have successfully raised them and that has been by accident!

I don't know what killed your worms but suspect they are just eating each other!
