II have a little breeding of Polyphaga aegyptiaca, a species quite common in Sicily. I have collected oothecae in the field, larvae and adults which survive in plastic and glass cages eating dog food without problems. I try to put together males and females. I have obtained oothecae but they don’t give descents. Also the oothecae collected in the field didn’t give larvae.

Someone can help me?

What have I to do?

Just leave the oothecae in the dirt with the adults, if you remove the oothecae you're very likely to kill them. Don't let the substrate dry out and do not keep it overly wet. Also, remember Polyphagid eggs take 3-6 months to hatch.

I have had good luck with them hachting in thier own container ,ooth burried and moist, but not wet.If they get too wet, they will rot. Temp around 85 F. But I have had them hatch in the same container with parents.
