Hi all
Seems all is good with my colony. Check out the brood. The larvae aren't wasting any time! Look how big they are in so little time. I also see some new eggs!
Sorry the picture isn’t the best. I had to use the flash and they definitely don’t like it so I had to be quick.

I just in case you noticed as well I saw two tiny little orange things near the brood. I immediately panicked and thought “ohhhh nooo! Can those be mites??” I immediately went back to inspect further. I always freeze or dip the cricket into boiled water to kill any unwanted mites or bacteria. It looks to be bits of cricket. I do feed Flukers Orange Cube Complete Cricket Diet to the crickets so maybe it’s from that??! I will still keep a close eye on them. :o 🤞🏻

I got some great shots of the brood and I’m blown away how massive the larvae are getting! Check them out!
