charzard Posted June 19, 2017 Share Posted June 19, 2017 So I had 8 cockroaches. Four of them were adults and the rest nymphs. One day I looked in and noticed legs and horn plate on the enclosure ground and saw that there was one adult missing. So, I am not sure how he died but they ate most of him. Nothing has changed.. Water and food the same.. I thought maybe since it was getting hotter.. but I added some small holes to the sides of the enclosure. Anyways, thinking the problem was solved.. I checked in on them yesterday.. Another adult dead, half eaten.. I took him out. So, now my female adult is left and largest male left along with the four other male nymphs. Is it possible that the male could have killed the other males for breeding rights or something? This is bizarre to me and I'm really unsure why they died.. Any ideas would be nice.. Going to change out their entire substrate and clean the container out tonight. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks ahead of time. Charlie.
