Super worm breeding?


Avid Member
So I decided I was going to breed super worms and I have them separated in containers in my closet I was wondering how long does it take for them to turn into beetles?

I’ve found it takes them forever and a day. :p
I had some that turned rather quickly within about a month or so and then I still have 1 very stubborn one that hasn’t been fed and has been isolated for at least 6 months if not longer and it still refuses to do anything. No idea how it’s even alive.

Thanks is it true that they turn it beetle fast is they are in the dark
Well, I kept them in my garage which is dark except for a nightlight and when I go out there. My beetles are starting to die off and I’m kind of dreading trying again. I do like the small superworms though for my leopard geckos, so guess I’ll need to start again.

I've never intentional tried to breed superworms. However, I did have a continuous turnover of them in my turtle/tortoise cages and a few other cages that had slightly moist substrate, pieces of really rotting wood and a supply of greens, veggies, etc. I didn't have to do any more than provide those 3 things.

Not sure that will help.
