We simply LOVE this question!!
We feed our mealworms wheat bran to feed that we purchase from a grain mill nearby. We pay a little more because we are so leery about pesticides or chemicals entering our insect population.
We sell the same bran we purchase on our website: http://www.rainbowmealworms.net/mealw...
You can also use 100% oats or whole barley. We recommend using organic grain if you can to avoid all pesticides. Next to our bran, the very best top-of-the-line thing you can feed them is Bob's Red Mill wheat bran which is available in most grocery stores. You can find the closest location to you on their website: http://www.bobsredmill.com/dealer_loc...
For their water source, we feed them roughly chopped carrots that we purchase from the supplier for Souplantation & Tomatoes restaurants. We take the carrots that grew crooked or have a crack in them that aren't 'pretty' enough to be put on display in the restaurants. Our mealworms don't mind!
Please let us know if you have any questions at all
