Male Roaches Hissing and Trying to Mate

Recommended Posts

I have two tanks of hissing cockroaches, separated by gender, next to each other. The male tank has one hisser that, for the last couple of nights, has been hissing and trying to mate with the other males.Including that one, there are five males in the tank. I have checked multiple times and am sure they are all male. Is this something bad and if so, what should I do to stop it?

Completely normal

 

 

Indiscriminate copulation is common in insects; Cotinis mutabilis males will even attempt to inseminate fingers

 

 

There is a chance that the other males may become stressed by excessive copulation attempts though; if this seems  to be the case then just isolate the troublesome male or give it a female
