    I’m wondering if anyone has some pictures or some specific details on what works for incubating.
    In my case, I’m trying to hatch red runner roach ootheca and I have been 100% unsuccessful.
    Even if you have no experience with that species, maybe you have an experience or some advice I could consider on my future tries!

    In my case, I initially purchased 80-90 or so mixed size, put them all into one enclosure, then feed them dry dog food time to time. That’s all. I don’t do any special incubation or whatsoever, except cleaning their enclosure once awhile. By just letting them be, I still see little nymphs here and there, and see numbers increasing on going.

  3. I placed the ootecas in a smaller box with dump paper towel. I keep it moist at all time. They took several weeks to come out. Nothing special.

    It’s working! I separated them and spray them every other day. Even though they seem dried out, a couple ooths have hatched so now I have a bunch of adorable babies
    Thanks for your help! Patience is much needed for this process lol
