Business Opportunity? Start a mealworm business

I was at a Petsmart over the weekend with my daughters, so they could ooh and ah at some cats and kittens and look at the displays of fish, when I noticed a tiny little sign next to an empty terrarium, mentioning that there is a national mealworm shortage.

I had no idea. Seems with all of the houses foreclosing, the economy tanking and a new president coming in, the media has missed the mealworm shortage.

That said, it is a little troubling on levels beyond the business implications if you consider that we have a national honeybee shortage and a possible acorn shortage, and if you let your mind wander, you can really wonder what's happening to the world. But I digress.
