Stick Insects, like all Insects, produce eggs. Some species of Stick Insect will lay unfertilized eggs without the presence of a male. This process is called Parthenogenesis. Other species of Stick Insect do need a male and female pair so the eggs are fertilized before they are laid. Fertilized eggs will produce both male and female offspring, whereas unfertilized eggs will only produce females.
