In this journal we will be covering the entire life cycle of a Jerusalem Cricket and hopefully we can document a successful mating ritual. Here is the link to my original post to give you some backstory: https://www.formicul...gs/#entry182947 .

 

I will update when there has been a change in the crickets or an update is requested. And without further ado here are the eggs:

I buried the eggs into the solid and then added more substrate the day after I started this post. Then last night in the corner of the dish I spotted a small larval creature so I’m hoping that that was a baby Jerusalem cricket. Hoping to catch a photo tonight.
