  1. As long as there wasn't any pesticides on it I can't think of anything that would be wrong with it.
  2. I keep my hissers dry and feed fresh fruit and veggies every couple of days. I don't keep my hissers on bedding but the roaches I do keep on bedding I use eco earth.
  3. You want something that breeds slow or fast?
  4. The nymphs make a good feeders but i doubt adults would be the best of feeders for anything outside of monitors, tegus, or other large strong jawed animals. I've feed nymphs up to 1.5 - 2 inch to my T's before with no problems. Not sure how long 20qt will work mine started out in a 20 qt and are in an 80 qt now. What are you planing on using them to feed?
  5. I use gasket bins to keep them in but the grease would be to keep them in during maintenance and feeding. It's like they know when my hands are full and then they bolt for the top lol.
  6. Which is better vasoline, silicone grease, or teflon grease? And can they all be applied to an enclosure with the roaches already inside?
  7. They just don't eat as much as you would think unless you have lots of them. You could remove all there current food and put new food in, in a day or two if you want.
  8. I would remove the water bowl at least for now and let them get it from the fruit. You can always put it back in if you want after things dry up a bit.
  9. Cat food is ok to feed too.
  10. Lower temps will make the grow slower and breed slow or not at all. Maybe try 75 f for your temp.
  11. I never mist my hissers i just give them fresh fruit and veggies every other day for there water.
  12. They should survive and be healthy with far more than four in a 12x12x12.
  13. Four should be fine in that size enclosure. I've never quarantined any of mine before. Just adding them in with the others should be fine.
  14. Well it was a will it work for the listed 1's or someone have a better idea for a roach colony in it. I would think a colony of Periplaneta would quickly out grow the container.
  15. Hopefully this pretzel container with a screw on top will too. I figure it's about 1.8 gal capacity.
