Hi all,

Ive been breeding lateralis for awhile, and figured my animals might want some variety, so I traded for 30 adult dubia about a week ago. 1 died within a day, and 4 died a week later (today). Im keeping them in a sterilite container, approx 16x26x8'', with no substrate and cardboard flats for hiding. No vents or heat source, but they stay in a room that stays between 78-84. I feed them ground up cat food and fresh veggies, just like my lateralis. Any ideas? I thinking possibly humidity.

Provide ventilation and consider a heat source. I've been breeding both lateralis and dubia for quite a while and both sp. fair better under those conditions.

Another consideration is that you recieved old animals (retiring breeders)...
