Apple is by far the favorite of my Parcoblatta roaches. Unfortunately the types of fruit I can get is limited here at college. I usually give them pieces of banana, pineapple, and cantaloupe from the cafeteria, but they dont consume it as readily as pieces of apple

Apple, pear, grapes, green beans, and carrots are my roaches' favorites. Each colony/individual seems to have its preferences, so keep experimenting and find out what they like.

i usually feed apples, bananas and carrots with monkey biscuits to my roaches but i just tried clementines and my discoids when crazy over it.

I usually use water gel for most of roaches,ripe fruits for banana roaches and fruits and vegetables for madagascan hissers.

The best is mango - if I give it to hissers than they want to destroy their box. :D

Sorry wrong thread, here's my suggestion my dubia are huge and healthy so I guess my diet for them is good.

Favorite dubia foods are: fresh oranges, dog/cat kibble, bananas, apples, white bread (misted with water), iguana fruit pellets, romaine lettuce, and as a treat cooked hamburger meat. Mine also enjoy orange/ banana or turkey baby food in a shallow dish.

I mist my colony lightly with a spray bottle and they drink the water droplets, the fresh fruit and veggie also provide extra liquids.
