Alex Posted January 31, 2013 Share Posted January 31, 2013 Hey everyone. A few months ago I found a few labidura riparia on some flowers outside and placed them with a small colony of feeder roaches. I saw a huge population jump in the l. riparia and a slow to nonexsitent growth in the feeder roaches. At first I thought the earwigs were eating the food or something but that was not the case at at all. At one night I observed them with out opeaning the container. and there was a roach with her ooth pushed out of her body and in a second a adult earwig cameout and grabed the ootheca and pulled it out of her abdomen!!! Needless to say I removed the substrate and all the earwigs on the eggcrates. But I do like how they look and there day active so here are some nice pics.
