  1. The only Parcoblatta I'm currently keeping is P. divisa and they only seemed flighty as the first ones matured. After i started seeing them mate they seemed to calm down and since only the adults climb I usually don't even worry about it. P. divisa hasn't breed fast enough for me to make them a feeder yet but I just started the colony last fall. Personally i use dubia for my larger T's and crickets for my few small or less active T's and occasionally hissers for my GBB's. Hopefully someone else can comment on breeding speed on other Parcoblatta. I suggested P. fulvescens only because I've read here that others have used them and they are tend to be prolific.


  2. If your planing to get adult females they will most likely have already bred. They can also have multiple litters from a single breeding so keeping babies out of your setup me be very hard. There should be no problem separating the babies as soon as you find them. Just remember even baby hissers can climb and are small. Whatever you put them in has to have small vents to prevent them from squeezing thru and escaping. If you don't want baby you might be better to start with a couple males and avoid all the baby issues.


  3. The nymphs make a good feeders but i doubt adults would be the best of feeders for anything outside of monitors, tegus, or other large strong jawed animals. I've feed nymphs up to 1.5 - 2 inch to my T's before with no problems. Not sure how long 20qt will work mine started out in a 20 qt and are in an 80 qt now. What are you planing on using them to feed?
