If anyone is still listening.  I am having a similar problem with mealworms my kid got last spring.  We have 3 (1 died a while ago).

They have been wiggling around in oatmeal with a diet of carrots since March and have not pupated (is that a word)? They lived in a 1 pound plastic spinach container until last week when I finally separated them.  They are now in plastic 1 cup disposable food containers with holes in the lids.  They live on a table in our living room.  The oatmeal is about 1/2 thick.  I switch out the carrots when they shrivel and the oatmeal if it gets some mold. We live in a place with mild weather.  Not often hotter than 80c colder than 50 c. It is humid.  Fuck it, the Bay Area in CA USA. We don't have AC and haven't had our heater in since we got them.

I would love it if they metamorphized and we have three creepy-crawly beetles.
