Hi everyone, I am a first time owner of 9 Dynastes hyllus hyllus babies since I got them as L2s in May 2019. 3 of them have pupated (respectively in Jan, Feb, then Mar 2020). All girls, all beautiful and looking healthy. Just a few hours ago, the one that pupated in January has emerged. She did a stellar job growing up. Here comes my question: my other 6 are still in their larval stage, lying around doing nothing. What’s going on? They turned L3 months ago, around the same time as the 3 pupated ones. The 6 of them haven’t been eating for months (over winter), just like the other
I was wondering what the maximum temperature that D. tityus larvae can be raised in. I was also wondering do higher temperatures lead to shorter development time? I have read it causes the lifespan to shorten, but does it also make the larvae go to maturity quicker? Are there conditions that are known to speed up development time or to slow development time?
