  5. So yesterday i noticed something interesting in my lobster roach cage at least 2 females were subsequently laying eggs and sucking them back into the body it got me thinking, do they release some pheremone to say "hey y'all, I'm laying eggs so lay yours too so our babies are born at the same time"??? thanx
