NRoach Posted June 27, 2015 Share Posted June 27, 2015 Hey guys, I was wondering if Eublaberus posticus are typically cannibalistic. If not, is there any way to stop it? They have a spacious bin , lots of wood slabs, and they're not overcrowded. I didn't have this issue until females started maturing. When females started popping up, I noticed that wings were getting nibbled off, but it wasn't until today that I noticed they were eating a freshly molted one. I'm not sure if it was a male or female who was being eaten, but it was terrible. It had it's abdomen completely eaten away and was being fought over by several large nymphs and adults. All while desperately waving its antennae around.There was another roach, a female, who molted into adulthood, but they didn't bother her at all except to mate. She's darkened up now, but should I be worried she'll be eaten? They get plenty of dog food and fruits and have a deep moist substrate. What causes this? I have never seen anything like this with my other species. This species is beautiful, especially as adults. Is there anything I could do to reduce wing-biting and cannibalism so I could get at least some adults with intact wings? Also, I'm really interested in getting more Eublaberus spp. Do the others have this same issue of eating each other's wings and each other?
