Default Mealworms Question

Ok i have a 5 litre container thats full of mealworms and off feces LOL. the problem is theres beetles, baby mealworms and fully grown mealworms all through it. I was wondering if theres something that attracts them so i can get them all into a corner and scoop them all up so i can put them in a new clean container?

Use a screen to sift the waste out, should leave all but the smallest worms on screen. place your waste aside for a few days to see if babies are present. if not discard.

I feed apples slices to attract them all to one spot. Use them in the leftover bran to collect the tiny ones that got through the screen
