How do I persuade my newly hatched leaf insect to start eating?
I have been buying and hatching Leaf insect eggs for some time now, but have not been successful in rearing any of them. The longest any of them have survived is 2 weeks. I have fed them on Bramble leaves that have been washed and torn - but with no long term success. (I have also tried them on oak leaves - but still no success)
I have bought some young Leaf insect nymphs who have been happily surviving for the past 3 months, so I am assuming that I have got the conditions right for them.
Please can anyone give me any suggestions as to how to get my newly hatched nymphs to eat?
Have you placed them in an environment like what they usually have in the wild? Any living creature would think twice about eating if he feels something wrong about his surroundings. By the way, good luck with your endeavor! I find it very interesting.
