It depends on the size of the colony. The bigger the colony, the bigger the worm or the more often you will feed them.

I'd say then about one worm a week at most, but really, just see what works, if they aren't eating what you give them, then you can give them less. If they are decimating what you give them then you can give them more. trial and error
