If you have a single stick insect, how do you introduce it to a partner and entice them to mate

Adult stick insects breed without help. Some species are parthenogenic, meaning a male doesn't have to be present as the female can produce fertilized eggs on her own. As long as you provide the proper environment for stick insects they'll be healthy enough to breed. The female remains fertilized after one mating even though she can mate again. Depending on the species, 1-7 eggs can be laid daily.
