    Hi. I'm an Ultrasound technician from central Illinois. I've been keeping roaches for a little over a year and currently have a dozen species under culture: B. atropos-new starter B. boliviensis-medium colony B. lateralis-new starter E. posticus-new starter E. floridana-medium colony G. grandidieri-small colony G.portensa-small colony H. flexivitta-small colony N. rhombifolia-Large colony P. nigra-small colony P. surinamensis-small colony R. cf. capelloi-small colony I keep these as pets (no feeding out) and first learned of this forum through the Allpet Roaches" website.

    Woody substrate

    Has anyone had any experience using wood chips, or chunks sold for smoking as a component of roach substrate, i.e. hickory, applewood, mesquite,,,?
  8. Since obtaining a small colony of Henschoutedenia flexivitta, I have been researching their natural habitat and region of origin. I haven't had much luck. Anyone out there have any answers?
