I found these things on my pillow this morning, I think they may have come out of my ears!! I’m feeling a bit dizzy and scared out of my mind!

I joke I joke!

They really came out of my nose…

OK fine, I found my first mealworm pupa. But you gotta admit they do look alien freaky. Even managed to get one half way through shedding it’s last skin. They twitch and move around too which adds to the freakyness. Now I’ve just gotta wait til they hatch into beetles which are awesomely called darkling beetles. Then they can make lil darkling babies and we start the life cycle again. Ooh creepy alien goodness 🙂

Update 23 May 2015 – so umm I realised last night that the previous post about me buying 500 mealworms to start breeding them as tasty treats for the duckies back in May is still in DRAFT and not posted and as such unless you have x-ray vision or something you can’t actually read that so the above post might make no sense at all… far out blondie… Here’s a pic of them settling into their new digs, complete with executive cardboard residence (only the best for my wrigglers).
