We don't recommend keeping them with worm colonies when either:
1. You are breeding your worms (if Buffalo Beetles don't have enough water they'll eat the eggs of the favored species.
2. You are growing regular mealworms. Adult Buffalo Beetle larvae look extremely similar to small mealworms and are easy to confuse for them. While it won't harm animals to eat them, you might pick them all out to use and destroy the colony on accident.
