There's a conflicting information on these beetles about being a cleaner.

What I found from other site "They are potentially harmful to your colony and are not a “clean up crew” both the larvae and adult beetles can decimate entire containers of smaller cricket nymphs, they will prey on crickets during shedding or any weakened crickets. They also enjoy eating their way through your nesting boxes…"

Lesser Mealworms can be a part of an effective Cleaner Crew for Roach bins or Enclosures. They eat miniscule grains that roaches miss. I raise them and offer together with other species that eat flesh as well as vegetation and mold. An effective Clean-Up Crew will contain several species all that specialize in various specific jobs while being harmless to your roaches.

Here Is a Caresheet for Roach Bin Cleaner Crews

Lesser mealworms are included in Roach Bin Cleaner Crews. Isopods and Springtails in addition will provide a full Spectrum Of Clean-up Crews.
