meal moths

Is anybody still working with indian meal moths? ED's Flymeat has not carried them in years. I'm interested in acquiring some since culturing waxworms has made my feeding my whole collection a LOT easier.

you've got some major cajones culturing those suckers.
yeah, they get into all your dry food, and they are very hard to get rid of, the fly all over the house, still find some in panty one year after thorough cleaning as they came from old bag of dog food.
Okay, so maybe this idea isn't one to pursue. I keep birds, and if they're that much of a pain, I'll probably go stir crazy trying to keep them out of the bulk bird food I buy.

I can't think of anything else though besides the mealmoths, greater and lesser waxworms. I really like using greater waxworms. I don't think there's much of a point culturing lessers since I have greaters, but I thought using a different type of moth larvae would provide more variety in the diet.
