My Emp brood just molted to second instars, some made it some didnt. The ones that did are very active. some stay on mom, some stay off mom. Now, I think they can eat at this stage but how do I go about it when they stay close to the mother who wont let me within a millimeter of them. I broke my butt to ensure they made it this far, I would hate to lose more of them to starvation when I have bought small crickets just for them to eat. Some have said the mother will kill for them, but I have seen no instance of this and she is a hog, lol. I even took a small cricket and put let it touch one of the baby's claws and its mouth and the baby just bee-lined up mommy's back. Any advice? Or will they still be okay til the next molt?
