Red runners eating ootheca?

Recommended Posts

So I keep finding empty ootheca that have been clearly eaten or gone all together. They have plenty of food at all times. Fish flakes, oats, potato flakes, cat food and dog biscuits. Fresh veggies and fruits given a few times a week. Kept on a thin layer of coco fiber with bark and dead oak leaves. Suggestions?

How humid are you keeping them? Blattids sometimes snack on ooths when they are kept too dry.

That might be it then, you should try raising the humidity. People often have trouble with lats eating their ooths, or the ooths just don't hatch, and a lot of the time this is because the humidity is too low.

Throw some hydrated sphagnum moss in there and you'll be set.
