    Beetle lover turned roach fan!

    Welcome! I'd suggest G. oblongonota, G. "princisia big" and Macropanesthia. I think I have flexivitta still listed on my last list. I originally got into roaches because you could find them for sale a long time ago (it could take you a decade to find ten different species) but nobody bred beetles and you certainly couldn't find them at a pet shop.

    New to roach keeping!

    Welcome oblongonotaFan32! I still mostly prefer the flashy stuff.
  3. N. cinerea has been known as the lobster roach since at least the 1980s, flexivitta is named after it because it looks similar but bigger.

    Any hope for the deregulation of millipedes?

    Trigoniulus corallinus and Anadenobolus monilicornis were established by agriculture. Those are tiny, unimpressive species that were never kept or heard of before they plagued Florida after introduction with ornamental plants. There are NO species introduced by the hobby. Millipedes were not regulated prior to 2006 and were still being imported legally.
  5. What kind of info are you looking for? If you're looking for something that adds to your background knowledge of roaches it's great. It contains a lot of interesting facts about cockroaches but it is a discussion of biology tidbits (not husbandry related) often about species you may never see.

    Hi from NC...

    A fine welcome to keepers of the greatest pets Justin! You can use monkey chow, any dog or cat food, fish pellets, etc. Anyone who tells you differently may be trying to sell you something or trying to sell something for someone else. I like Beneful for puppies.

    Gyna centurio mite problem

    It's tough to get rid of grain mites because there are probably some in your house and certainly around your house. However, it is possible to get them down to where you won't be able to find any if you look. Start with fresh substrate and only add food a day or two after every last particle of food has been eaten.

    A Cryptocercus Question for the Experts

    Did the guide tell you it will take 5 years?

    A Cryptocercus Question for the Experts

    I suggest sticking with the rotten wood.

    hello from kansas!

    Welcome! D. punctata are similar to hissers in care but it's hard to get much production. You'd probably never see 800 at once no matter how much work you put into it. It is a unique species. The D. punctata I have originally came from Roth, but maybe somebody else has something very similar.

    Dwarf white isopods vs giganteus nymphs

    I think the tomentosa would feed on dead ones but have no ability to harm healthy giganteus.
  13. You could try putting petroleum jelly only where they are chewing.

    Hi from Germany

    When will you travel to find your Loboptera?

    Porcellio expansus

    I offer a few damp areas and a few dryer areas in the enclosure.

    Porcellio expansus

    Porcellio expansus has been the most sought after species for a while. They grow very large for a terrestrial isopod (many times the biggest most people see in their back yards) and older males have extremely long uropods. There are two different forms, one where the "skirt" (margin of the pronotum) is light orange and one where the skirt is yellow. Porcellio succinctus looks similar but the skirt is white.

    How big are newborn hisser nymphs?

    They are around 8 mm long, 4 mm wide and 1 mm thick.

    Hawai'ian cockroach stowaway

    Congratulations on your find, hopefully you get a good culture going.

    Porcellio expansus

    They like moisture and ventilation which can be a little trying at times.

    Hello from Georgia

    What species do you have?

    Hawai'ian cockroach stowaway

    Looks pretty neat, but you might have to wait till its an adult to figure it out.
  22. Allpet Roaches

    Blaberus giganteus as feeders

    They can do pretty well, just not enough to spare too many.
  23. Allpet Roaches

    Isopods slowly dying off

    What's the ventilation? Do you know what species you have?

    Isopod Hobby

    I bought a copy of that book and there is NO mention of isopods, not a single word. I wish I hadn't bought it.
  25. The top do all look like craniifer and I don't know if you can tell on the little guys unless you compare a picture of both at that size.
