Hi Nic

Thank you for your lovely message, I did read about mealworms and until then I didn’t realise they liked them. I will not be giving them any after what I found out. Having checked them today I am not so sure about babies, there appears to be 1 large hog and 2 slightly smaller ones. I didn’t want to disturb them too much but will be keeping an eye on them and will keep you updated if this number changes. I am in the process of planning to get or make a home for them for when the winter comes. Could you tell me if they eat snails or if it’s only slugs plus the other bugs etc?
