Katydid eggs!


Chameleon Enthusiast
Very excited, found my katydids layed some eggs. Anyone out there breed these before? They usually lay them in rows on twigs, but mine scattered them all over the cage... I underestimated their size too, they're like tiny pumpkin seeds. I should have made my cage less of a mess, they are in the screen, blades of grass, in the soil, etc. Originally I was going to remove them, but with this predicament, I might just leave them in the cage with the adults. I'm thinking they probably need a diapause as well, but maybe not? I live in an area with cold winters, but I know they are also found in warm climates where they thrive all year. So not sure exactly how I want to go about all this. Open to any input.

Here's some pictures of the cage and an egg on the screen.

SO LUCKY!!!!!!! Good luck!
I have 25 grasshopper egg cases I'm gonna try to hatch. I'm going to experiment with diapause time and see if I can figure out what works....
