vfox Posted February 5, 2014 Share Posted February 5, 2014 I've only ever heard of Parcoblatta pennsylvanica being able to mature after a lengthy winter diapause. As in chilling them for a few months and then warming then back up so they can mature. It's their natural cycle in he wild so it makes sense they'd need it. That being said, this summer I caught about a dozen or so and kept them at and above room temperature ever since. This molted out a day or so ago. An adult male P. pennsylvanica, no diapause, no cool down at all. I'm waiting on the females to mature next. Let's see how it goes. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
