organic peanut butter and yeast ok to feed?

8 posts in this topic

i have a jar of peanut butter that i don't care for and some packets of expired bread yeast. think its ok for my dubias and peppered roaches to eat? yeasts are present everywhere in nature. peanuts are high in protein. would think in small amounts they would love the peanut butter esp.!

In lab we fed peanut butter to German and American cockroach, definitely not gonna kill them at all.

just a update. they love peanut butter! which is good as peanut butter doesn't mold. mixed in the yeast with it and they chowed it down! esp. the peppereds.

A couple of weeks ago a co-worker left out a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and it was REALLY stale. I snagged it and gave it to one of my tanks of dubia. They seemed really excited at first... ate more than half of it... then took forever to finish it. I probably gave them too much all at once, I suppose.

I feed cooked veggies on occasion... but we tend to add salt and such at the table, so ours are healthy.
