Bug boy

Recommended Posts

I work at an exotic pet store, and I'm in charge of the "bug" department. I've noticed that many of the dubias have been dying when I'm not in working, and I'm wondering what's caused it. they are well fed, and i have tried to do what i can in the limited time that i work there. I have dubias at home and i breed them and have had only a few casualties. i was wondering if i could bring home some dead dubias from work, open them up and put them under my (very good lab) microscope. i was wondering if there is anything i can learn from doing this. if you have any advice at all, i'd love to hear it.

Thank you so much!

Usually those giant plastic storage bins with holes drilled in the top, or large glass aquariums with the screen covers. Dubia can tolerate less humidity but prefer high humidity and do better with it. I mist my cage with a spray bottle (water) to help do that.
