Mealworms are easy to grow at home.  These come in two sizes -

small and giant.  I like the small's, but I have a buddy who

grows the giant's.  Get a new 5 gallon bucket (no lid). Buy

these from your fast-food places for around $1.00.  Then go to

the bait shop and buy a couple of boxes of the size mealworms

that you want to grow.  Do not mix them!

I started mine with a big box of Kroger Cost Cutter Oats, but

Quaker Oaks will do.  I now use hog brand meal.  We buy one

hundred pounds (several of us split it) for $6.00 from a farm

supply place.

Now fill the bucket about 1/4 full of meal. Dump in the worms

(the more you start with the better).  I got about 1,000 from a

friend.  Now slice up a potato and throw it in (you can use

apples, fresh corn cobs).  What we're looking for here is

something to hold moisture. I use only potatoes.

Buy some nylon screening from the hardware store to cover the

top.  You do not have to tie it in place.  The bugs do not fly.

Now the worms will turn into grubs, then black bugs, then die.

It will look like nothing's in there (wait).  Feed potatoes and

meal when you think it's necessary.  I add 1 potato per week

now, plus a cup or two of meal.  Leave old stuff in bucket.  The

stuff that looks like powdered residue are eggs -that's your

next crop.

This process takes a couple of months, but you will have worms

of all sizes, black bug and grubs eventually.  I fish with the

worms and grubs.  I ice fish mostly with the grubs and smaller
