Ok i got 31 adult females and 10 adult males 50 large and 220 nyumphs to start my colony. Now i have food out Cucumbers, roach food purchased from doodlebugs website, orange slices, some collard greens and carrots. Also have the water crystals in there. Now they seem to only touch the oranges and that is it. I never see a swarm of roaches eating only 1 maybe 2 at a time. Should i be worried.
Theyu are in a Rubbermaid tote with a human heating pad underneath. I used a digital thermometer and the temp at bottom is aropund 98 and when you go up an inch it is about 87 then another 1-2 inched around 80. Surface temp is 75. They seem to be all towards the bottom where it is hotter. Not sure if i am doing something wrong or maybe i should do something different in my setup?
Anyu help would be appreciated.
