First off let me say that this is all In My Opinion. That I gained this information from Many Others On Arachnoboards. Though I can't give named credit to everyone that has put tips up on the subject. Thanks. I just wanted to share what I personally Gained form all the input that so many have placed here to help others and maybe help someone else while I'm at it.

The colony is Off and running!
After weeks of pupating worms into beetles, and weeks of waiting. The cerial level of the colonies subtrate started to vanish at an alarming rate.

This is all MHO and something that has worked for me.
