Kaiko Posted August 8, 2021 Share Posted August 8, 2021 Recently I’ve been dealing with phorid flies on my G. portentosa colony. I hate them so much but since they weren’t actually harming my roaches, I didn’t panic THAT much. Yesterday I found a lot of maggots feeding on a deceased roach and when I started cleaning, I noticed a young female with, what seems to be a hole on her abdomen. I start looking for answers and found out that phorid fly larvae can actually parasite roaches. I am keeping her apart from the rest to watch over her. I’m scared since I don’t know if she’s the only one infected. Any ideas on what should I do? They’re not kept as feeders, but as my precious pets. 💔 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
