Therea oothecae hatch time


Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd take a note on how long it took my Therea sp. ooths to hatch.

I noticed my first Therea sp. "granjeani" ootheca on August 10th, and while checking the colony today I noticed a multitude of itsy bitsy babies that weren't there before. This means it took the ooth(s) a minimum of 87 days to hatch; much shorter than many of the other estimates I've seen. The temps in the roach room have never dipped below 70, though. My Therea petivereana oothecae, the first one noticed on September 2nd, have not hatched yet. I'll post an update when they do. :)
