One question--is there any way to encourage creatures to breed more?

I had the brilliant idea of trapping shine bugs in my berry farming chamber. Free light! And it worked pretty well for a while. They do lay eggs and reproduce, but it seems that it's at just under the replacement rate. They were fed and happy, but eventually died off.

I was hoping to do the same thing with solar panels to have an almost completely renewable power source (just a tiny amount of minable food). But I need some way of creating a bunch of them. Even just laying two eggs per 25-cycle lifetime would be huge.
