I bought an adult female Damon medius back in November, and she had been carrying an eggsack. Today I opened her tank and found the eggsack half-eaten and laying on the substrate. I am assuming that she will ignore it and do nothing with it, but does anyone know if it is possible to remove the partially eaten eggs (to prevent mold) and hatch the rest of the eggsack in a separate container (I think if I leave it in the female's tank, then feeder insects will give it a taste-test)? I do not currently have a male for breeding, but is it possible for her to lay another fertile eggsack? I know mantids only need to successfully mate once, and then all of their eggs are fertilized.
