Hi everyone, I got small Gyna caffrorum and Gyna lurida colonies just a few days ago. Yesterday I found some dead adults in both enclosures, and the live ones are pretty inactive. Nymphs seem to be doing fine, but they aren't very active either. I keep them in large plastic containers with 4 inches deep soil layer (mixture of peat, soil, pieces of bark and leaves). I gave them dry cat-food, orange and apple pieces for food. The temperature is about 25 degrees Celsius. I spray the wall of the container - on one end - with tapid water in every 2 days, so they could drink. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Could you give me any suggestion? Thanks so much for the help!
