Well, I checked out my lesser waxworm cultures yesterday, and I finally have some moths! Woohoo!

Thing is, how do I transfer them to new cultures while keeping them from escaping?

I transfer them as "starter" worms, let them pupate, emerge, breed, and die... shortly thereafter you have feeder-sized worms (a small window if you are only feeding darts) that can be harvested from a moth-free (or at least they're all dead) container. Repeat.

This way you never open the container during the flying moth stage.

Unless you have several cultures going, there is obviously some down time (no harvest) with this method.

hth,
