    Bait for wild roaches

    Bait fish oil and molasses works well. It will attract a lot of flies too. Mango, papaya, banana, dark beer, red wine mixed in brown sugar.

  5. Has anyone ever had the "all adult colony of roaches with minimal breeding issue?" The only remedy I have for that is to leave only 5 adult males.

    Water Crystals out of diapers?

    I am not sure if its the same crystal...but it expands when wet and turns into little dry rocks once dry. They are sold at a nursery for adding to soil.

    Hi from Costa Rica

    Welcome Nacho. Glad you made it over here from Ovogram. Now I can send you some free roaches. I have been to CR once...I was in Tortugero , Arenal, and Monteverde. At that tie I was more into snakes and lizards "I change my intreset every now and then" I loved catching vipers and vine snakes and did a few nose dives for those jesus crist lizards aswell...But by far the best thing was the COFFEE!!!

    Water Crystals out of diapers?

    As a test I gave those to some roaches and then a few days later I froze them....When cut open they all had crystals in them....I don't use them at all.
  11. Fish meal works well....but get ready for some runny stools.

    Blattodea of NY

    In NYC there is the infamous periplaneta japonica.. it's unique in the sense that it is the ice fish of roaches and can survive - temps...I think they also are active during winter and walk on snow... They are only found at High line the Manhattan park...No were else in the US have they been reported. If you went out to collect them you would be the first person in the hobby with them on this forum.

    Nymphs of Periplaneta americana

    I really wish we could see more of the natives from your country...China has so much to offer in terms of insects.
