Hissers sluggish then die


Recommended Posts

My hisser colony is having a problem - I have been finding that one or two at a time will become sluggish over a weeks time - to the point that they will barely struggle when put upside down - then they die. Its been going on for about 2 months.

Any suggestion? comments?

Heat is 85 degrees, they have a humidity hide, fresh food along with dog and cat food. Nothing have really change from before this started happening.

Are all the dying ones adults? It could be that their generation is just dying off.

The same thing happened to one of my dwarf hisser colonies, at first I cull any that show the symptom, but that didn't work they just keep dying. Finally, i selected a few strong ones, and culled the rest. After 2 weeks of quarantine, I put them into another colony of dwarf hissers, and they're fine since then.
