  • They look like mealworms and, according to Google: "They will eat oatmeal, cornmeal and other grains crushed into meal such as wheat and milo. In the wild, they eat fungus, seeds and decaying plants, but captive mealworms often eat dog or cat food, old cereal, chicken food, birdseed, flour, fruits and vegetables.".

    • Also, "... mealworms need to get their water from something solid, like a vegetable. Put slices of carrot, celery, potato or green pepper (or any other fruit or vegetable) on top of their bedding. Choose a vegetable that won’t go mouldy too quickly, and exchange the pieces for fresh slices every 5-7 days. Vegetable scraps work well – try using the ends of celery or carrots that would have been composted otherwise.".

    • Wow thanks so much. Mealworms indeed.
