    CAn dubia roaches eat raw dog food?

    I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd add a little to it. I just tested a batch of dehydrated raw dog food with my dubia roaches last week, and they LOVED it!!! I had picked up a small sample bag at the natural health food store where I used to work (there's nothing in it a human wouldn't eat)... I forget the brand, as our local store sells a few different types... but I'm pretty sure any brand of natural raw food would work. It's dehydrated, so for my dogs, I have to wet the food. For the roaches, dry works perfectly. I didn't even have to grind it - big one to two inch chucks were devoured in less than 48 hours. Because the food is dry, there's no need to worry about mold. I grew up in the city, and I've seen roaches gorging on fast food waste on the side of the road - so I figured raw dog food? Why not! This stuff can be a bit expensive... but if alternated with other sources of food, it should provide to be a good investment
