Bobby and Fiona are the two I have currently. I will be breeding them and when I have 25-30 nymphs in their 5th molt, they will be ant food. (The nymphs not Bobby and Fiona)

This is a neat idea. Earwigs are loved by all my ants. Can you describe how you're keeping them?

Welp. Fiona finally laid her eggs, but, Bobby and Jessica got into her container (they are stackable bead containers) after she laid, and.... She killed them... :*(

Well, Bobby is still alive! And Fiona's eggs have hatched! There are 20-30 nymphs. when they are old enough I will put them in the larger nymph nursery, and breed her again.
