Complete mealworm growing setup
If you have chickens, reptiles or other mealworm-loving pets, you know they're expensive ($10 a pound and up!)
But you can easily grow your own using this kit

Includes:
Sterilite 3-drawer cabinet with wheels (adapted for mealworm production) 15 1/4" D x 21 7/8" W x 24" H
Set of 3 stainless mealworm sifter pans (12",10",8" with gradiated hole sizes)

Used, but in excellent, clean condition & ready to use
To start your self-sustaining mealworm farm:
1) Get some live mealworms, put them in the top bin with some oatmeal (or other grain) and carrots for a water source.
2) After the worms turn into darkling beetles, they will lay eggs that fall through the bottom mesh into Drawer 2.
3) The eggs will hatch into mealworms, which you can harvest for your critters using the sifter pans.
4) Some you can put into the bottom tray and allow to develop into darkling beetles, which you will move to the top bin to start the cycle all over again.

Fun, educational and a great, cheap source of protein for your pets!
Will provide full written instructions, which can also be found in many places on the internet.

Can meet up anywhere around Corvallis for delivery
$25
