    In the fish department at Walmart or at pet store there is food called bloodworms. They will work much better that mealworms.

    Nothin wrong with mealworms, they are just gooey. The bloodworms they sell are freeze dried. Bloodworms are also much smaller, they are easy to grind up into a powder to spinkle on dews and pings.

    I wonder why people think CP growers are weird.

    True Bruce, but the irony is this. The guy who paints his face or chest with his favorite football team's colors probably laughs himself silly at us. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I have not tried it yet with mealworms on sundews or pings. I do use them on my neps.
    I would not be smashing them up, but feeding them whole. I raise my own mealworms because of the geckos I keep. I will just pick out some tiny mealworms and place them on the dews and ping and see what happens.
