"Darkling Beetle is part of Mealworm's life cycle. Mealworms go through four different phases in their lifetime: Egg, Larvae, Pupa, and adult Beetle. Mealworms are a great source of protein and the most favourite food for birds, reptiles, fishes, and many other animals. Humans also use Mealworm in their food as a source of protein. Mealworms and Darkling Beetles feed on different cereals and plant's sap. Humans as the only convention-maker animal tend to produce culture. They are the only living creatures that apply to signs according to their implications. Culture forms within a variety of conventional systems. Ants, wasps, and many other insects produce instinctively, which has nothing to do with culture. Here instinctive co-operation of Darkling Beetles and cultural interfere has led to building a manufacturing structure that was made unconsciously under partly conscious control. In natural systems 'incidence' is possible to happen."
