Female Lateralis that can climb smooth plastic

Recommended Posts

In my colony, the turks cannot climb smooth plastic at all, not even climb out of a level 8 ounce deli cup but on two occasions after sorting roaches I've seen both times a large female be able to run very fast on smooth plastic. Has anyone else ever seen this? I thought they weren't supposed to be able to run on smooth surface maybe because she built up speed on the egg crates first or do the adult females have some special spiderman ability? Ive seen people say they dont use a lid "because they cannot climb anyway!" Fortunately I am using a gasket box and I dont feed any females anyway cuz I want them to lay for eggs

Interesting. I have seen my smaller ones use water droplets like a rock climber. As well as climb a dirty container wall. Crazy bugs.
