Wood roach parthenogenic?

Recommended Posts

I caught a cockroach, which i presume is a Parcoblatta sp. It was immature when i caught it. It molted once, and turned into an adult female. Months later, i open the cage to feed her, and by the food bowl is an ootheca! I dug through the substrate and found 2 more. What i don't understand is how? She was never subjected to a male the whole time i had her, so how did she lay 3 eggcases? Could she have mated while she was immature and retained the sperm? And how should i take care of the eggcases. Thanks in advance! :)
