  1. Hello - I have hissers in my classroom. Usually we never get to see them actually give birth. I go home at night or on the weekend and when I come back I have babies. I have one female who has been trying to give birth now for over 24 hours. She will stop and try to push for a while and then rest and do nothing for a while. Is this amount of time normal? Should I be worried something is wrong with her? Thanks!

    Thank you both for the feedback! I do not use organic and hadn't even thought of that so I will definitely make sure I peel things at the very least from now on. I don't think it's the heat lamp as I have been using the same ones since Sept. They are night vision ones so the light is low and the enclosure always stay at about 80 so I think that is ok for now, but thanks for that suggestion as well. They all came to me as full size adults from my science curriculum company - so I have no idea how old they actually were other than "adult." For some reason I thought the life span was longer

    I have had two hissing cockroaches die within the last two days. I am brand new to hissing roaches and am not sure what I am doing wrong. These are a part of my classroom science curriculum but I am planning on keeping them as classroom pets. I have the males and females in separate aquariums. They have the proper dirt, and heat lamps, and enclosures. I feed them apples, carrots, bread, leafy greens, celery, etc. I also water them with cubes or gel. The two that passed away did not seem to have anything physically wrong with them that I would see. Any ideas??
