eaten wings on my dubia


Recommended Posts

hey folks. the other day i was feeding my dubia colony. i noticed a lot of the males wings were chewed up. they always have food and water and aren't overcrowded. could my cleaning crew be doing this ? i have dermestid beetles and larva in there. they get plenty of protein w/ the fish pellets i add to their bowl. these are feeders for my tarantula so I'm not really concerned just wondering why it would happen.

Thats really interesting I havnt seen any wing biteing in my group. Do you think its a moisture issue or number of males? I keep mine at roughly one male to 5 females. If there were more males do you think I would be seeing wing biteing?
