PowerHobo Posted August 10, 2019 Report Share Posted August 10, 2019 Sorry in advance, I’m just in a rush, completely unprepared, and between appointments at the moment. My wife and I went to a local farm/orchard to pick some fruit, and I ended up finding loads of figeaters, which I have never seen in Vegas before. I managed to find a container with a lid and catch 10 or so (haven’t counted). I’ve got them separated into 3 32oz cups right now with a couple handfuls of oak flake sub in the bottom for humidity, and some of the eggplant leaves I found them on. I need to move them into a proper communal container when I get home I want to assume these guys have very similar needs to G thula, but not sure. Would I be good keeping them in a tank with a few inches of leaf litter substrate and some furniture or leaves to climb on? I’ve notice these guys are HIGHLY active fliers, and I’m not sure if it would be better to limit vertical space to discourage that for their own safety. I’m extremely short on jellies right now; will these guys do okay on mashed banana, cantaloupe, watermelon, orange, etc? Do the larvae just need a leaf litter sub like G thula? Any required protein supplements like some of the African flower beetles? Anything special required to encourage ovipositing? Finally (I think), any way to sex adults? Thanks in advance!
