    Oh, btw, my peppereds seem way calmer now when I handle them since I cleaned out the springtails. Some of those died, don't know if it was springtail related.

    They only roaches that I know that were not affected for sure were glowspots and extinct in the wild, because i have a starter supply of those. Both are at least a year old, the glowspots still immature.

    I ordered some pink springtails about a year ago. Don't know the species. In several enclosures, I had various cockroach species affected. The springtail populations grew out of control. I had thousands in each enclosure. I think a higher humidity in the enclosures excaserbated the overcrowding problem. Even larger roaches such as adult longhorn Hissers were affected and several died.
  6. I recently ran into problems with overcrowding of springtails. They ate many of my roaches legs off. I have since separated all the roaches in all my enclosures from the springtails. I noticed this after several roaches perished.

    Hawaii Roaches

    There are the 2 species I see outside the front of the Aulani Resort. The first species is the smaller one, and there are literally hundreds you can see along the sidewalk on leaves. They seem to eat decaying leaves. The second species are bigger, and resemble American cockroaches, although not the variety that exists around my house in Louisiana. http://s64.photobuck...ary/Hawaii Bugs
  8. I am vacationing at the Aulani resort in Hawaii and noticed some roaches on light poles at night outside the resort. Can I legally catch these and check them with my baggage on the way home? I may get some pictures if I get a chance.

    Byrsotria rothi

    Thinking about getting some of these to put in with some millipedes. Worried about them disturbing molting pedes. How far do they burrow under the substrate?

    Louisiana roach hunting

    I caught 2 of those Ischnoptera deropeltiformis pictured above and put them in my communal tank. Those guys are fun to watch run. They drift like a race car lol.
