Half dead dubias

Dear Roachkeepers,

I have a big problem. Yesterday I have cleaned my dubia bin because of mites and invading crickets. I put all dubias in a bucket and then washed the bin and cooked the substrate. Then I had have to go to work and left the roaches in the bucket for approx. 8 hours. At night when I get home found the roaches's 90% half dead - or whatever. I put them back to their enclosure immediately and heat the cage up and hope they will be okay for the morning. Now I just checked them, but nothing changed. They are still just lying and if I bother them they do not want to move or anything. It's a little colony - approx. 100 specimen - and the majority is adult. But the nymphs are doing this too. I do not want them to die but I do not know what can be the problem. I'm looking for any idea!

Thanks!

Zoltan

What happened to these guys?

What was the bucket used for before this?

Nothing but water from the clime. But it's clear. Before I put them in I washed out the bucket with clear water. So I do not understand. I can still find dead specimens in there. :S

Dear Zoltan,

I am sure they were steamed - they need fresh air but maybe it is too late.:(

I had this problem after moving last year- I lost over 300,000 dubias and over 50.000 discoids!
