    No more than what they can eat in several hours time. Remove any excess unless you want to deal with mold and grain mite outbreaks.

    Um... maybe try feeding it and seeing how long it takes? And what's up with the attitude?

    I would put half of a piece, and change it every other day. The soft chewy ones work best, the hard ones work but not as well as the others.

    Good luck

    Can I feed cat food to Lucanus Elaphus
    larvae ?
  8. I think they can, because if they can eat dog food, why not cat food(they are very similar) ;)
