That's an egg case (ootheca). She will extend it to dry, then turn it sideways and draw it back in. She will deposit one about every 7-8 weeks. She will then stand over it until all the little nymphs have have crawled from it. Dubia ootheca average about 15-30 eggs.

Are you sure they are dead? They can play dead pretty darn good,
Or...
Is it just a shell? like are they empty? if so, it may just be from molting.

I had that problem for a while. I adjusted two issues and the problem really stopped.

1) It shouldn't be wet in there, but mild moisture and a constant source of water. Those cricket cubes dry up really quickly. I like water crystals better as they last longer. Mist the container every day, just a couple sprays.

2) They like it warm, but not too warm. The best way of figuring out what they want is to put the heating pad only under a quarter of the tank. If it is too hot they will be found on the far side, If not, they will be mostly over the pad. Adjust accordingly. I don't like to keep them too warm, because I like to keep the breeding a little slower.

I am overrun right now, so if anyone is interested , just write or call.

Talk to you later,
Matthew
