The "farm" consists of an aquarium tank painted black with a screen top and a felt cover to keep it dark. It has lots of food inside, consisting of weetabix, honey, and glycerin, and corrugated egg-laying platforms. I am actually surprised they are still thriving. I think if someone just put in another load of weetabix, honey, and glycerin, they would keep making wormies. Great for panfish, and supposedly for trout.
No charge. I live in Pasadena. If you're interested, let me know, and we can set up some place to meet and I will give you the whole thing and instructions how to keep it going!
Here's the catch. You have to swear that you will be a responsible waxworm farmer, and please, please, please, take it seriously. Waxworms make moths that hunt out and attack bee hives. There are lots of bee hives all over the place, even if you don't see them. Even one moth can destroy a whole bee hive. If you take this farm, please promise you will do everything you can to keep the moths under control and not let any of them get loose. That's all. Just let me know.
