  1. Hey Neverlift, was wondering if you still had some Death Heads and halloween hissers available? I have a friend whose been searching high and low for them.

    Cage pests:

    I had a phroid outbreak in my blaberus bin. I changed out the substrate, let it dry out, flypaper, vinagar traps, and extra springtails. Nothing was working, they were starting to spread into my other bins and gecko tanks. As a last resort I added buffalo beetles(lesser mealworm) they helped but did not solve it. I noticed my oriantalis bin has a Vaseline barrier, there were flys stuck to it. I slathered vaseline all over the top and sides of the blaberus bin and within a few days they were all gone. IMO a vaseline barrier is the best offense for a fly problem

    Cohabitating Roach Species Question

    I have a few multi species bins. They all seem to thrive, and it saves space. Surinams and red runners is one of my favorites, lots and lots of roaches in that bin... Death heads and beetle mimics, peppereds and dominos, banana and chromes, hustlers and kenyans, widehorns and halloweens. The only issues you run into is if the nymphs look similar it can be hard to separate them if needed. Separating the species in general is a hassle but not much more then a thorough deep cleaning.

    Questions About Micro Feeders for Micro Geckos

    I have them in a 16 quart ziploc gasket bin with 1-2 inches ABG substrate and some cork and eggcrate. I keep half of th substrate wet and a heat pad under the dry side. They like to burrow but they often scurry across the surface, and they hide under cork and egg flats. The adult males can climb. They're so tiny they can live with other roaches just fine. My 16 quart bin has hustler roaches, little kenyans, dwarf purple isopods, and buffalo beatles in it and they are all thriving.

    Questions About Micro Feeders for Micro Geckos

    I keep morning geckos, they are a little smaller then Eurydactylodes. I feed mainly fruit flys, then once they're bigger little kenyan roaches. They also get some rice flour beatle larva, lesser mealworms but fruit flys are easier. They also get small some red runner and surinam nymphs, but again the little kenyans are easier. When I say easier, I mean to grab a few the right size out of the cultures. Ive also seen an adult mourning gecko going to town on springtails, so put some of them in there too.

    Glue for securing screens?

    I do the same, its a lot more time consuming, but the results are worth it.

    Enclosure cleaning

    The crates will last a lot longer if you put them vertical. Freeze it to kill any roaches or ooth you missed, so they don't establish anywhere unwanted.

    Enclosure cleaning

    I would have a second bin ready and you just transfer over the egg crates. Then pick out any left over roaches and ootheca, and freeze the dirty substrate before chucking it. Are your eggcrates set up vertical, because most of the frass should fall to the floor. I keep mine on moist cocofiber with springtails.

    Feeding Frequency

    I give fresh veggies/fruit once or twice a week and remove it when I see mold. Dry food I try to keep available at all times. Like you said with high humidity enclosures thats not possible, so they get a small amount once or twice a week.

    Wild caught roaches

    Thanks @Hisserdude @Cariblatta lutea I'll be sure to update the forum with how they do and if the ooth hatch.
  14. The ones I'm afraid could possibly establish in my house. I keep in a sterilite gasket bin, no ventilation I just make sure to open it everyday.
