Wood roach nymphs I think - Parcoblatta virginica

Wood roach nymphs I think - Parcoblatta virginica
Perry County, Pennsylvania, USA
Size: 9 mm
A few months later, and we have some last instars. These things grow really slowely!!! I feed them on fish flakes and chicken food

What is that white substance around the rear of the insect? They all have it. The wood roach I kept last year had it too

I really hope there is at least one female in this group (I have 6 of them). It would be interesting to breed them
I think it is safe to move these to Parcoblatta...

Parcoblatta
I thought I'd moved them to [i]Parcoblatta[i] already, but must have entered in the wrong destination back when I moved your first batch of images- I'm sure that you were right on this genus from the start. I'm excited to see what species they turn out to be when they hit adulthood.
