A few months ago I bought 1,000 mini mealworms (labeled as Tenebrio obscurus)...it turns out they are not that species...they are probably buffalo worms. I believe they were sold to me in good faith...just a mistaken ID. However, buffalo worms can cause diseases in chickens...and I had purchased the worms with the intent of feeding them to various creatures, including to my chickens...and now that is not going to work.
Does anyone culture the true Tenebrio obscurus?
