don't give up on them- I had one hatch yesterday that I thought for sure was a dud - I was going to strip cages today, and had it not hatched yesterday, it would have been in the trash today :eek:

I keep my ooths in a tall deli cup. I put them on a little stick up near the top so when they hatch the babies can drop down. I give them a little light mist just about everyday and keep them on top of the frig. Where it's warm. Be sure to have tons of fruit flies and pinheads for when they do hatch.

70 on the low night time temp. You want to up heat (80-95 daytime temp) and up humidity to get things hatching.
