I have two questions. Here's some background. I have had trouble getting my babies to hatch out of their shell. During breeding season, I dust my crickets every feeding. Because I dust every feeding, would that be making the shells too hard for the babies to come out?
Also, if I completely cover and thus burry the eggs in the vermiculite in the incubator boxes too deep, would that be making it too hard for the babies to come out as well. If anyone could please respond to this that would be great.
