    I get 5000 mealworms a month - 2 months and rotate on the second species of insect. The second species quantity changes each month as does the species itself. I also have superworm and mealworm colonies going here at all times as well. (I buy mealworms in addition to the breeding of them because I don't have the space right now for a larger colony.) My current colonies are "back-ups" for another mealworm shortage. ;)

    Hehe, you counts aren't high enough for me. I get up to 1500 crickets a month (depending on how good breeding is) and about 50 earth worms and 50 supers.

    Just wanted to get a general idea of what people are buying. LOL I have to have some data to start my business.

    Depends on the month, I am a bit lazy and don't take time to breed. I try some but yeah, I don't put forth enough effort. I just buy about 3000-5000 depending on the month. I have a feeling I'll have to get more soon.

    I only buy 50 superworms at a time, and if I can find large mealworms I would get 100. I only get about 3 -4 dozen crickets at one time, but I'm trying to get my frogs off crickets -- but they aren't very cooperative.
