Hey guys, new to the forum but have been keeping a Dubia Colony over the past year to feed our Bearded Dragons. Last year I scoured the internet for information on how to care for them and what type of enclosure to house them in. It's worked out pretty well so I recently made a video of the build process and uploaded it to YouTube. Let me know if you have any questions, or suggestions for modifications if I make more in the future. Thanks
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
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!

sss81387 posted a topic in Feeder CockroachesI'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!
