Hey everyone, so I've been keeping peppered roaches for quite a while, but recently they haven't been breeding. I keep the temps at 80 during the day and 75 at night. Humidity is ususally like 50-60%. All my other roach species are breeding fine.
Any suggestions?

Try adding moist wood to the enclosure for them to eat. This helps them for some reason. They also give live birth, so you might have to wait a while before you can see any changes.

Do they have an inch or two of hardwood leaf litter? Mine began breeding a few weeks after both males and females had matured and will chase each other all around the tank making quite a bit of noise. The babies appeared about three months after I had a few adults breeding.
