Could Platymeris spp assassin bugs be housed in 32 ounce deli containers? Like one per container or maybe even two with adequate hiding spots?
You can just feed them small roaches, even if they are a little bigger than the nymphs they should still try to eat them, or if you can't get small roaches then you can smash the head of a larger one and they should eat it.Ranitomeya, it looks like you've got them on roaches now. What do you feed newborns nymphs? Fruit flies?
Wikipedia says the following, "It was thought that they (Platymeris biguttatus) breed both sexually and through parthenogenesis, this however has recently been proved to not be true. Whilst unmated females will lay eggs, they are infertile."Also are most of the species that are in the hobby breed via parthenogenesis?
