Sam Glickstein I found this article on a mass cricket feeding farm w automated feeding system, but are crickets too different from mealworms for it to apply or this could help?

Ali Stone I’ve seen that article. While crickets are grown differently than mealworms, the principle is still similar. The system I have working right now with Collaborizm and Aman Garg will be automated, though initially won’t be as sophisticated. These guys are on the right path and are essentially what I hope Biotrophics will be in the next two years.
Thanks for sharing!
