Arthroverts Posted June 4, 2019 Share Posted June 4, 2019 Hey all, I had bought some 12+ Therea petiveriana a while back (about a year or two ago). I raised two to maturity (unfortunately they didn't breed), but then the group just sort of died out it seemed. I was recently using the old substrate in their cage for some isopod enclosures, and I noticed something moving! I sifted through the substrate and found seven juveniles! All of them had been surviving in a low moisture, low food environment for at least six months, because I thought they had all died. I am still shocked. I guess roaches, even more sensitive ones like Therea petiveriana, still possess that incredible hardiness that has come to define the amazing insects known as "cockroaches". Anyway, just wanted to share that with all of you, and ask the question: When have your roaches defied the odds and survived? Thanks, Arthroverts 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
