Reproductive Biology

Water lice reproduce from early spring to mid autumn. Observations differ on whether males prefer larger females. Heftier females produce more and faster-hatching eggs but are a heavier load for males to carry during the precopulatory, mate-guarding period. Males that choose larger females may cut back on precopulatory mate guarding and carry the female nearer to her fertile period, which occurs during her final molting.
