Putting Mealworms, Springtails, and Pull Bugs in Russian Tort's Substrate?

    I could have sworn I saw somebody say that they put mealworms in their tort. table substrate and then I came across a small thread about bio-active substrate with the other listed animals. What's the point? Won't those little critters crawl out and eat you in your sleep?:D If they don't hop out, how could I start this? Of should I? Just let worms roam around and have my ruski peck at them? What if they breed and get out of control?

    Having bio active substrate allows the old food and feces to be broken down so you don't have to clean as much.
    Mealworms will breed out of control and take over a cage. Pill bugs and earthworms are fine though.
