  1. Um this species is parthenogenetic, sometimes rarely you will get a sterile male, but that's unlikely. Keep them as a separate colony, they will eat the babies of other roaches. @Hisserdude

    Suggest me a species!

    periplaneta australasiae, americana, or another species of the genus.

    I am new here obviously but anyways I hope to endear myself to this community, I currently do not keep pet roaches but may start a feeder colony. I may try rhino beetles next year. Anyways I enjoy rearing Polistes wasps(Paper wasps) and also have three turtles, two snakes, and one 10 year old cockatiel. I found this forum through Arachnoboards. hehehe

    Goodbye for now...

    Hopefully you get back before I get restarted in the hobby. Good luck.

    The Addiction Grows

    Yes, babies will just die for no apparent reason, it's the chance we take when raising such little ones, and realistically, not all are meant to survive, lest we be overrun with all sorts of critters.

    American cockroaches as predators?

    Not mine, but you will get the idea.

    Blaberus giganteus "Honduras"wildtype

    I like the fact people are trying to keep and maintain pure wild strains. Keep us posted.

    American cockroaches as predators?

    Watching them hunt crickets was amusing. They never lasted long.
  9. That's awesome, maybe these massive roaches will finally become more common.

    Periplaneta crazy

    Still waiting on the details to get the smuggling operation underway. I don't want to move money to PayPal unless I'm gonna use it. #PeriplanetaForHisserDude

    Periplaneta crazy

    I'm guessing someone needs to head to where they have been found in New York and catch a lot of them...

    Indeed, he just needs the proper "motivation" to get these most glorious of roaches.

    Periplaneta crazy

    It's fine, can't have too many Periplaneta threads. Glad to see some REAL roaches

    Lanxoblatta rudis (Rough Bark Roach)

    Done, pm me the details and I will wire the funds to pay for this. Deadly serious.

    Lanxoblatta rudis (Rough Bark Roach)

    I will help foot the bill for such a noble cause. @vfox it's time for pics of your collection, I'm going through Periplaneta withdrawal.

    Bronx Zoo Valentine's Day Roaches

    I've found several Periplaneta species in the house while I was down in Florida, most were on the verge of dying due to dehydration and starvation. Some were to far gone to save. A majority of the ones I caught were outside. Blattella is a lot more hardy.

    Lanxoblatta rudis (Rough Bark Roach)

    So are Periplaneta, but I don't see you keeping them. Congratulations on the babies.

    Which Breed should I get?

    I'd get some Periplaneta species, or red runners, the "roachy roaches" are interesting captives as well, with Periplaneta americana having a very bold personality. And to think a few short months ago I was nervous about keeping them.

    The Addiction Grows

    I had a tarantula named General Bald Ass, so those names work. Bitchface was a name given to my pokie after he bit me, Karma got him though, when his mate ate him.
  20. Exactly, they aren't as robust as the hype portrays them. I've never seen them up north. I doubt the Australian roaches could even survive long term outside their cages in more northern states, unless there were mitigating circumstances, like a greenhouse or many potted plants for example... @All About Insects You will be fine, unless you deliberately try to assist them outside their cages lol.
  21. I also found them to be more out going. @Hisserdude it's the fact that you don't keep them, that makes you uncultured.
  22. You have amazing taste in roaches, too bad @Hisserdude is so uncultured. Any other Periplaneta species planned? Periplaneta americana, are a good choice if you want a bolder roach species. And of course there are other less common ones.

    Capucinella delicatula

    Are flat roaches becoming a thing? If they blow up, we all get the pleasure of being where it all started. LOL
