    Help-I found our superworms on the floor with the lid off-not sure HOW MANY ESCAPED!!! I have already found one. Does anyone have any ideas on catching more or how this will play out?

    Are they confined to one single room? Or the entire house? How about putting a slice of potato or something on a paper towel near suspected locations?

    Is it cold in your house or not? If it is then just keep an eye out in dark places for the worms, no harm done really except for loose worms.

    If it is rather warm (room temperature or higher) then if they become alone and hide someplace dark they will start to change into the beetle form. I should know I've had it happen before, ended up having 10 beetles running around before.

    I can't help you personally, but, I did want to welcome you to HCN! Sorry for your superworm woes.

    Not likely you'll find them, they will get into some tight dark areas and as stated pupate into beetles.
    It's no big deal, the beetles will emerge and you'll be able to start a breeding colony.

    Yeah really no problems, you may just be startled by the odd beetle.

    Sometimes I have seen crickets running about and I swear I have not seen any escape..such crafty fellas.
