Peppered roach cannibalizing

Recommended Posts

So i had a massive die off adult peppered roached which is kind of normal, these adults were older. My nymphs are doing okay, but i will likely end up buying more to pad out later. However, just found a molted adult who had been cannibalized. Pieces of leg, carapace and wings all eaten. Poor thing. Anyone have any advice? I have never noticed them doing this before but that doesnt mean much. Sometimes i just dont see things like this i just assume its a vad molt since these guys can be fussy occasionally. But now im worried i have someone eating molters.

Either increasing the space, humidity, or protein in their diet should help.
