Diapheromera femorata walking sticks


Recommended Posts

I collected 2Β Diapheromera femorata walking sticks yesterday. And I will be getting more soon. Any tips on raising them or their eggs? Hopefully I will be starting a breeding project and making this species more avaliable. (One of the sticks lost 1 leg through molting sadly)

I'd just say a screen enclosure or a tank on its side with a screen lid. And if you want the food twigs to last longer, you can submerge the end in a container of water with a paper towel or something similar covering the rest of the opening to prevent them from drowning. I wouldn't know with the eggs, though. Good luck.

I left my door to my room openπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ. And thankfully one may still be alive and all the eggs are safe!
