Tormentosa can be pests

Recommended Posts

Anyone else had issues with tormentosa overrunning enclosures or otherwise causing issues with other species? My Vonones ornata colony stopped producing once the tormentosa numbers rose. After rehousing them they began producing again which makes me think the isopods were eating the eggs. They also infested my A gigas cage which made me have to set up a whole new cage up. They seem to be fine in my roach cages though.

Any cleanup crew can become pests when their numbers get too high, however T.tomentosa in particular have a bad rep for getting into other enclosures and then sometimes out-competing the original inhabitants.
