DonaldJ Posted August 31, 2016 Share Posted August 31, 2016 This is a minor milestone, but the second generation of my B. Orientalis have started hatching. There are now about 25 little nymphs running around, maybe more as they are too quick to count accurately. With more than forty oothecae yet to hatch I should end up with quite the colony; the adult females are still producing. Yikes! What I found significant is that I read that this species takes about a year to reach maturity, but it's only been ten months between generations (hatching to hatching). Thanks to all in this forum for their help with these critters! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
