How sad! Will the parents lay a new hatch?

Will the parents lay a new hatch?

Yes. They've had millions of years of cold snaps to know what to do. This weakens the parents in the area and may lower population numbers temporarily and if the ecosystems and species are resilient their numbers will recover.

That is a shame, they are meat eater & will eat many grasshoppers& other bugs.
