My female emp is quite fat and has refused food for the first time today. She has become slightly tetchy and has a pale yellowish colour on her back. Is she coming up to a molt? How far away is it? How long does it take?

Could be fat.

Could be getting ready to molt.

Could be gravid.

Refusing food means nothing at all with this species.

Moved to emp section.

That means it's an adult.

No molts for you.

I thinks my two emps mated last night because there was a white substance on the ground and then there was a white spot near her pectines.

The white substance is poo.

When they mate, you'll find one of these.

She could just be fat hun.
Or she could very well be gravid and about to birth but the only way for us to help with this, is a picture.
Snap a pic of her and we will have a look and let you know what we think
