Traditional Tenebrio Molitor farming involves intensive labor during various stages, which requires a lot of manpower and breeding costs. The labor-intensive procedures include the separating of live and dead mealworms, the large and small larvas, the pupa and larva, the pupa and beetles, the removing of feces, worm skins, etc. Through years of design and development, we have designed advanced automatic mealworm separator equipment with multiple functions. As a professional mealworm separating machine manufacturer, we design the equipment to meet various demands of users in medium or large farms, thus greatly improving the breeding efficiency and reducing the labor of Tenebrio Molitor farmers. The following are the major sieving functions of the automatic mealworm separator machine.
Dead and live mealworms, feces and insect skin removal
Most commercial insects are small larvae to mature larvae hatched from eggs. In this period, in addition to feeding food, we should screen out insect dung and insect skin and pick out dead insects regularly. If dead insects are not picked out in time, they will rot and deteriorate, affecting the normal growth of other mealworm larvas.
Screening of large and small larvas
It is needed to clean the insect skin, insect feces, dead insects, and feed residues in the breeding boxes. At the same time, separate the large and small insects to meet different needs or leave the small Tenebrio Molitor to continue feeding.
Sifting of pupae and larvae
The pupae mix with the larvae that have not yet pupated. If the pupae are not picked out in time, they will bite or eat larvae, which will seriously affect the later reproduction and yield.
Separation of pupae and adult insects
Pupae turn into beetles and gradually turn from white to dark brown after a few days. At this time, adult insects need to be picked out in time, otherwise, they will eat the pupae that have not yet emerged into beetles.
Sorting of dead and live adult insects
After pupation into beetles, they must be collected in the spawning screen to mate and lay eggs. After laying eggs, the adult insects will die. At this time, the dead and live adults in the oviposition screen are mixed together, which not only occupies the place but also affects mating.
An automatic mealworm separator is an integrated sieving machine with multiple screens to realize multiple purposes. The functions mainly involve removing the insect dung, worm skins, and impurities, separating the living and dead worms, large and small worms, pupae from larvas, and beetles from the pupa, and so on. The automatic mealworm separator can finish the sorting tasks at one time, and each kind of material can be separately exported.
