Caresheets? Fermented Sawdust?

Recommended Posts

There is a portion on fermenting sawdust in The Ultimate Guide To Breeding Beetles. Definetly a book worth picking up. Long story short you mix up a bunch of shredded hardwood with some accelorators in a thick garbage bag and leave it in the heat to get toasty. Can get the regular recipe later, kinda brain dead right now at 3 am.


Be careful where you put it, though, don't leave it in too dry an area. Fermentation and rot produces heat, wood and compost is nice and self-insulated. In hotter areas, mixes like that can ignite themselves with their own heat.
