Incest in roaches


Recommended Posts

I currently have some hssing roach nymphs from the same egg sac and I was wondering, if they happened they happened to breed (not purposefully) and have nymphs would that harm the nymph genetics? I'm separating them anyway as I don't want more nymphs OR incest, but I'm curious on if incest will harm roaches the same way it does for other animals.

Inbreeding doesn't seem to affect most commonly cultured cockroach species in the slightest, so there's no reason to separate them. :)
