that doesn't really matter, the worms could be the dinner for your roaches, and I guess they can cohabit.

I have a colony of meal worms that started in the same fashion. I am pretty sure they came in on some kale I fed to the roaches. I just isolated out as many as I could and started a colony of them in some oat bran. they make great sling food.

i have a couple species of tiny beetles that live in my roach colonies. they don't seem to hurt anything and i use the beetles and their larva to feed my other bugs :D
