AKA Florida predatory stink bug. I'm super excited to keep this species :)

Very nice. What's the life cycle with these - 1 year or do they live longer? How are you keeping them, what sorts of foods are they getting?

Wow man that is beautiful! Congrats with all your success!!! :)

 

Thank you :)

Can't exactly say success for this species cause I screwed up a bit and ended up killing majority of nymphs. i'm left with 3 now :(

This is my first time breeding this species so I'm unaware of the lifespan of the adults.

 

From what I saw on Orin's website, these guys can take as little as 60 days to mature from newborn to adult if fed well enough. I've been keeping 9 of them in a glass jar (about a gallon in volume) with nothing inside, but that resulted in death from dehydration so I later added some plants in there. Nymphs were fed with Parcoblatta fulvescens adults, but as they became older they started cannibalizing (probably because I didn't feed them well) on their siblings so I had to separate them into deli cups.

You should TRY IT! It's not too hard...just takes lot of work to feed the hungry bungs. lol

Yeah but I do not have a good food supply for them. The only feeders i have are mealworms and I have a small colony of them, not enough to feed off. Mabye one day!

If you are planning on using them as feeders for predatory hemipterans, I would recommend Panchlora nivea :)

I agree. I use them for my mantids and my Phidippus jumpers, among others. They're pretty cool to just have in my opinion! :)

 

I second that :)
