macbrush Posted November 6, 2011 Share Posted November 6, 2011 When I first got them, they molted fine, never had a single issue. But recently, the remaining nymphs started their final molt, but the mortality rate is quite high, I would say around 50%, and among 35 nymphs I have had, maybe 30% of them died after final molt. At first, I thought it was lack of plant materials, so I added more dried leaves for them to chew on (they always have some wood in there), but didn't help much. The weather has became a little cooler recently, but I try to keep their bin at at least 24C. Is this species prone to this problem? I have a bin of Giant Cave Roach right next to them, and they don't have this issue at all. I feed them oat meal, cat food, fruit and veggies, as well as have plenty of plant materials inside the bin for them. The bin is full of molting platform, and they don't have molting problem at all, only die a few days afterwards. Any suggestion would be much appreciated.
