Old roaches loosing legs

Recommended Posts

I've got old roaches, possibly a little over 2 years old. I noticed the end of there legs are just falling off now, I assume from old age, i've seen it happen the legs were not bitten off.

Is there anything I can feed them that may make the legs stronger?

What kind of roaches?

The tarsi of old insects fall off, it's a common sign of old age for them. Healthier animals will last longer without damage but there's nothing they can eat after-the-fact that will strenghten the exoskeleton.

Ok thanks. They still get around great even with the lost limbs, and have plenty to eat.
