    I agree that bloodworms are probably easier to use, but if you want to feed them mealworms you may want to freeze then pulverize them--at least for the pings--for two reasons: 1) unused bits can promote fungal infection and 2) pings (at least mine) can't digest large, bulky pieces of food.

    To this day, my largest-leafed ping hasn't caught anything bigger than a mosquito, and typically feasts on tiny flies and thripes.

    FYI, a member of these forums molds bloodworms into shapes when putting them on ping leaves (hearts, crosses, etc). You should see the nice pics in the ping forum.

    get the freeze-dried variety. You can easily pulverise them between thumb and forefinger.

    The frozen variety will just make a sticky mess if you try that.

    And what I find useful for dews (though it would prolly work great for pings) is Hikari Tropical Micro Pellets, little, tiny, almost sand grain-sized fish food. I just sprinkle a bit on. No crushing needed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    They make freeze-dried mealworms. They might work. Freeze-dried bloodworms are what I use.
