@jamest0o0 No I woke up this morning and it was in the open area where the food and water crystals are, upside down dead. It’s weird to me but I have zero experience with Dubias so far. It a brand new roach bin roaches supplied from two different dealers.
I've had dubia females die like that before, its rare but it happens. What is going on is that its pushing out its egg sac and after that it cannot pull its vag or whatever its called back into her body. It dries out and eventually kills the roach. I've only had that happen 2-3 times in a 6 month period.
That is the roaches guts. If you step on one you'll see the same thing. I do agree, some sort of complication with the ooth which probably caused the guts to explode out too. They have live birth, but sometimes will eject the egg case.
So I looked through my bin and I found a couple more of the bigger females looking like they are showing signs of this starting. They are still lively at this point. But have the same white “guts” starting to protrude from the rear end. Any bug specialist out there? Known sources for good info?
Also I was wondering if anyone knows if these are the same species? They look different to me? That are slightly a different shape, one is shinier than the other and different colors.View attachment 244085View attachment 244086
