Whilst attending a routine inspection at a contracted customers farm our technician Steve came across this large infestation of mealworm within the roof space of the buildings.

Mealworms prefer warm, dark and damp locations and will feast upon fresh or decaying matter, hence the farm building being the perfect location for them.

The mealworms are larvae of the Darkling beetle and live to eat and grow until they have enough energy stored to begin the transformation into pupae and then into the beetle.
