Stick Bug (Hermarchus sp.)
New Guinea, Fiji.
My culture is parthenogenetic. I started with
about 40 nymphs that have grown up to L4- L5, then
the hell broke loose! Each time they were molting
they would either loose a limb, or the legs came
out crooked. It seems that they prefer 30- 40% humidity.
It is VERY important to provide a good grip on
the top of the cage for this stick bug to molt properly.
Since i have installed some mesh on the top of my
tank, already, i have a few females that are molting
with no problem.
Yellow Salmon Berry.
Status: My whole stock all of the sudden died :(!
Looking for more.
