    Mating initiation

    Hello, long time no see (as I was and still am studying for several biology exams) I was wondering about how the mating process is initiated in roaches. Shortly before I got my A. tesselatas, a year ago, I read the female signals the males her readiness for mating. But more often than not I see the males dancing for the ladies (which looks hilarious, btw) and the ladies just not caring or even fleeing in a panic from them. So... is it actually the females actively attracting males with pheromones etc. or is it more of a passive phenomenon the males pick up on (wether the females want to mate or not)? Maybe it depends on the species? Thank you in advance
  2. Today I observed some interesting behavior and managed to capture it on camera: A male Archimandrita tesselata courting a female.
