    Hello, I´m very busy with the University (exams......) and I can´t read the forum as well. I had the same problem with B. craniifer: I buyed 1,000; I divided the in 5 colonies (200 each) and started to die as Zephyr described (many fruit flies.......). I´m studing Biology and I´m working in the Enthomolgy Departament of my faculty. I think there isn´t any fungus infectation or bacteria, maybe Nematodes. Now, I´m working on them and I´m analyzing my roaches with one of the "Nematode Doc. Teacher" (sorry, I don´t know how to write it). Next Monday I´ll have some results about the analysis. Best regards, Javier.

    Hi from The Netherlands

    Welcome Tom, It´s nice, you´re from The Netherlands because I´m trying to study there for the next year (I´m from Spain and I´m studying Biology). Also, I would like to register in BCG (Blattodea Culture Group): I sent an e-mail some months ago but they never answered me (it was in summer), How did you do? Thanks! Best regards, Javier.

    Hello, That´s great Maarten! How did you keep the oothecae? Mines leave some of them and now I´m keeping the oothecae as adults. Am I doing it ok? Best regards, Javier

    Hello, There´s only one species of Oak, it´s Quercus rubur. There´re some other trees of Quercus genus, like Q. suber, Q. faginea, Q. ilex and Q. coccifera for example. Of course, this information is about Europe, but I think it´s ok for US. Best regards, Javier

    B. craniifer

    Hello, Thanks Orin, so I´ll put 500 B. craniifer in one cage and the other 500 roaches in another cage (both 24"x16"x16"). It´s now ok? Best regards, Javier.
