Mealworm farming technology

  • House: The yellow mealworm must have a breeding house. The house should be light and ventilated, and there should be heating and heat preservation equipment in winter. The size of the rearing room depends on how many yellow mealworms it breeds. In general, every 20 square meters of a room can raise 800-500 plates.
  • Rearing plate: For mealworm farming, the rearing plate is generally square. Sieve tray, also rectangular. It is to be placed in a wooden tray. The wood used to make the frame should preferably be free from odor. To prevent worms from crawling out, attach plastic tape to the top edge of the 4 frames of the rearing tray.
  • Tray frame: The wooden frame for placing the rearing trays is made according to the amount of rearing and the number of rearing trays. Use square wood to connect the wooden frame and fix it to prevent it from tilting or tipping, and then you can put the rearing trays on the shelf in order.
  • Other equipment: The temperature inside the feeding room is required to be maintained at 15~25℃ in winter and summer. To always know the indoor temperature, it is best to have a thermometer and hygrometer.
