  1. Hey, fellow roach lovers I currently have one good-sized dubia colony servicing a single (but very large) leopard gecko. Obviously, he can't keep up! I've seen other members say that one colony was not enough for just a couple of their herps! I'm curious. What animals are you feeding to? (Including amphibs, repts, ts, other inverts) Which ones are your best (read: BIG) eaters? Pics are very welcome, of course! I may or may not use your recommended species to fill my spare terrarium
  2. Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you know that I have created a website that will hopefully answer some questions about Dubia Roaches as feeders and how to breed them. The website probably does not answer every question out there but I am working on making it perfect. Please let me know if you think something should be added to the site. I used to host the website on a blogspot platform but I was finally able to get a .com version Let me know what you think and what I should add to hopefully answer questions for the new and confused Thanks!

  3. I've been doing my research into getting roaches, and finally found someone on craigslist that is getting rid of their colony as they have developed a severe allergy. This will be far cheaper than getting them from my local reptile shop, so my previous plan of just getting 6 or so to start is out and getting a decent amount is in. That being said, I'd like to try and keep the colony a manageable, stable size. How many should I start with? I should mention they are dubias. I presently have a bearded dragon, that eats about 2.5 dozen large crickets a week; a pair of leopard geckos that eat about 2.5 dozen large crickets a week; a trapdoor spider that will probably eat 2 decent sized nymphs a week; and a trio of red-eyed tree frogs that will eat several nymphs a piece every couple days. I will be starting a colony of banana roaches soon for the tree frogs (which will hopefully be breeding next year ). I guess I'm just trying to figure out how to calculate the cricket to dubia conversion rate, divide it by the dubia birth rate, and multiply it by the I don't want to get to the point where I have a dubia colony that weighs more than my house! Sorry if that all doesn't add up, I've never been a fan of math . To summarize: How many dubias from her colony of 5000 should I get to start a colony? Thanks!
