Not sure if this is an issue or not. Some of the mealworms I give as feeders burrowed and over time have become beetles within the enclosure. I always try to remove any uneaten worms but a few got away. Is it ok to leave the beetles in the enclosure? I know they might lay more eggs and didn't know if this would be a problem. I also try and remove the beetles if they are not eaten. I guess they would be a good way of starting a colony.
