Therea ooth hatch time?


Recommended Posts

It's been about 5 months since my females have been laying ooths, and I have yet to see any hatchlings. I know Polyphagids take a long time to hatch and grow, but still, I'm concerned. Also, I saw a half eaten ootheca in the cage, why would they eat it? Is this species known to eat their ooths? Should I separate them? Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance! :)

They are T.olegrandjeani. I kept them at room temperature, so that may be why they took longer to hatch.

I started with eight nymphs, three of them matured and produced many ootheca, the others are still nymphs. It only takes a few adults to make a ton of ootheca! :lol:
