somewhere on the internet I read that locusts can suffer from diarrhea .. They can get it from keeping them too moist or give them too much wet food.
at the moment we have beautiful summer days here in Belgium (you know, a lot of rain....) :)) and the grass that I pick is not always dry when I have to give it to the locusts.
Now for my question: there are a few of my locusts dying and they literally fall apart when you want to take the dead locust away. it also leaves a red mess around everything (blood perhaps?)... normally when a locust die they are very hard and stiff (you throw them away in one piece) but now they are really mushy, they fall apart in pieces and you can just squeeze them empty!
Does anyone know what this can be? can it be diarrhea or is it Serratia marcescens again? ! DSC_0953
