superworm question

Can I keep these superworms I just picked up (supply issues with mealworms) in cocofiber and just gutload with carrots/etc. placed on top of substrate? Or do I need to keep them in a food source like oats.

If I'm not mistaken, the go-to source for these is corn meal but very fine/crushed. Not sure where to get it in that consistency but you can get regular corn meal at the grocery store.

that's good news since I like to fry things with cornmeal so no trip to the grocery store :cool:
