  15. Hi all, i have three roach colonies, one is of hissers, other is of lobsters, and the last is of red runners. I have noticed that the colonies of hissers and lobsters don´t have a particular smell, but the red runners colony (turkistan roaches) do have a particular pungent smell. Also i am interested in to purchase soon a colony of dubia roaches. my question is: the dubia roaches do have a particular smell too? or they don´t have it? thanks, regards, Roberto.

  19. Hi, anyone had noted this hissing behaviour in the lobster roaches when they are pick with the hands ?? The mature lobster roaches do it as same as the madagascan ones, but the hissing of the lobster roaches is done in a low volume range in comparission to their african cousins, maybe as a self defense method against their predators. Thanks.
  20. Hi, when you know that you need to do adjustments of the quantities of individuals inside of the breeder cages ?? I mean, how to know when you need to add more males or females ?? As example, you start hypothetically wit a radio of 5:1 of females:males, and so you start with around of 500 females and 100 males within the same bin. But a few months after happened that many of the individuals had died inside the bin, and also has been eated by their own neighbours there. So you cannot know how much males or females had died because many of their corpses actually disappeared. But anyway you are quite unable of to know how much breeder females or males were lost during all these few months because you cannot counting them each time you open this breeder bin. And so, your initial radio of 5:1 has becomed actually disbalanced, and also the breeding potential of this bin actually is under its minimum. But worst, in the real numbers actually you don´t know how much males or females you must add to the bin for to restore its right balance inside. How must be fixed this issue ?? thanks in advance for your commentaries !!

Once i did e-mailed to your parents to the e-mail you gave me a some years ago, with the purpose of to send them a few of ova as a gift of E tiaratum, and i told them i knew you in the live insect keeping hobby, but i haven`t reply.
