Well most have not made it to 3rd instar :( I will breed her again to see if maybe the reason for the high loss was because it was her first sac, doubt it had anything to do with it....but I have had first time moms get a lot of sling deaths on there 1st sac and then lay a 90% good sac the next time around...so we will see.
