This is an excellent feeder species and one of my personal favorites. The females can give birth to forty or more young and can do so every two months. In my experience, these are more prolific than Blaptica dubia! The nymphs are very stocky and meaty. They will gnaw on each other’s wings (and each other!) if they do not have enough moisture.
