I have bred mealworms off and on for 8 years or so. During this time frame, I have yet to see a single darkling beetle take flight. I was reading up on sugar gliders and came across a mealworm page that stated that darkling beetles could fly. I went on a quest with google to find out this answer, but I haven't come across any other information beyond that page that states if the Darkling beetle can fly or not. Has anyone read anywhere that does state they can fly, or have you personally experienced them taking flight? I am now curious if this was someone "guessing/making it up" or if these things can fly, just haven't had a reason to try and leave the colonies I have created. All input is welcome.
