This should help. You can sex adults and large nymphs very easily with this method. If the nymphs are too small to tell the difference try getting a jewelers lens maybe.

This methid that Doc shows above is very reliable. Especially if you have several and can compare what the narrow segment of the male looks like alongside the female's end segment being so much wider. It also works for othe insects like Praying Mantids.
