It's been 6 1/2 weeks since I first observed egg laying (April 15) and adults are emerging in my breeding room today. :D

I did not observe bug sex yet though... :oops:



Right on schedule! Three weeks as larvae after hatching and three weeks pupation before emergence! My 7 week life span estimate is right on schedule! Fess up Jerry, you fed them vitamins, didn't you! :roll:

No but they've been eating fresh rotten organic produce almost exclusively. And that one batch of Ensure. :P
