    As long as they aren't sharing supplies with the Chinese restaurant @wild edges....

    Has anyone bred their own mealworms?  I’m tempted must be cheaper than buying them.

    I've accidentally bred flour mites😝. I'm totally paranoid about them now and always check the flour to see if it moves.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    I had those last year B3 - gross. I'm likewise paranoid.

    It never goes away. I keep my flour in an airtight container and only buy from shops with a high turnover.

    I’ve never had those flour mites even in bags I’ve had for years. Just rolled shut, never airtight containers or anything.

    They are only £1 a bag for quite a few

    I think Edd used to do it @Lyn, but he's disappeared, and I can't remember how he did it. 
    My sister used to get flour beetles in a previous house. You don't notice once they're cooked... :D

    Those flour mites are horrible. Somehow they can get out of the container and walk around your cupboards.
