I also use white and red bran, I also mix in some wheat germ. I always give them fruits and veggies as well. I got big bags of the 2 brans and wheat germ for only $2.50 at the bulk bran store!

actually when it looks like sand that is the eaten bran it is also an indicator as to when you should add or change the bran

That's roughly the mix I use and it seems to work fine, just started raising my own a month or so ago... have a colonly of beetles, but no second generation Mealies yet.
