Unhatched cards can be stored at 40°-45° F. for no more than 10 days. Once hatched, they can be stored at 54°-64° F. for no more than 4 hours.
Eggs will hatch within 5 days when kept at 70° F, but can take up to 14 days to hatch depending on temperatures. Once they hatch, the eggs on the card will not change in appearance because of how small these insects are. Adults can live anywhere from 7-14 days, but can build up to 30 generations per year.
