Another Jerusalem Cricket Egg Update

I'm sad to say that most of the eggs from Ripper's first clutch have decomposed and molded over, seems they may have been infertile. :( While there are still some healthy looking eggs from that clutch, I have a suspicion that none of them will hatch.

This is pretty disappointing, was really excited about the prospect of breeding these guys, but things are heading south fast. Will keep you guys posted.


  1. Man, that sucks, sorry to hear. :( You still have another female who should be laying, right? I guess you'll have to wait for the next clutch to get some fertile eggs.

    1. Not anymore, just found her dead next to two eggs, she never really laid a full clutch. :( I still have quite a few viable looking eggs though, and David Weissman still thinks my eggs are all fertile, so there's still a chance I could come out of this with babies, fingers crossed!

    2. Dang, that's very unfortunate. :( That's good, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you as well!

    3. I know, it's been one tragedy after another with these guys, really hoping I'll get some eggs to hatch at least. Thanks, will keep you updated!
