    Pesticide removal

    Hey @stanislas... Yes, they died shortly before this picture, and some hours after offering non-pealed fruits.... 😕
  2. Xenoblatta

    Are these bad?

    Could they be seeds of something you fed them? Is not rare to find Drosophila worms in organic waste inside terrariums....

    Sweet chunks for Cockroaches :-P

    Exactly! I use to prepare a lot and freeze them for a lot of time... Works perfectly for me 🙂

    Breeding Behavior in All Male Colony

    I have never had a colony with only males, but I have seen this kind of homosexual behaviour in colonies with both sexes... 👨‍❤️‍👨 👩‍❤️‍👩

    tree leaves as food

    I use to feed my roaches leaves and flowers of Hibiscus spp. They love it. 🙂

    Help me identify these nymphs please !

    Wow... Thank you @Test Account I'm sorry I didn't read it before 😮 I get it... I hope he gets better and come back around here...

    I'm not good with hissers... 😛 Maybe @Hisserdude can tell you?

    Pesticide removal

    Wow! I'm so sorry @Test Account I have lost insects for those horrible pesticides already... Maybe cleaning with vinegar + sodium bicarbonate diluted in some water? Is what I use to eliminate pesticides in the fruits before offer to my roaches... 🙂
  10. Very good point... I have noticed the same in some cases. At least in large populations of B.dubia and N.cinerea I've seen is because they may increase the temperature of the colony just because their own activity... which may give them an additional impulse. 🙂

    Hyporhicnoda reflexa

    Those are pretty nice 😄 How it's been your experience of breeding H.reflexa? Do they breed well for you? 🙂

    Any roach species you mix?

    Well... I'm not sure species of Eublaberus could hibridize, but neither I'm sure they couldn't 🤣 B.dubia + E.posticus + some other non-climbers like Shelfordella lateralis or Pycnoscelus femapterus (Only adult males are climbers) sounds good for a gutload container :-)

    Female Lateralis that can climb smooth plastic

    Ok... could you show us a picture of those climber females? Sounds like you have some visitors of the genus Periplaneta 🙂

    Any roach species you mix?

    Hello @Jimbobtom I don't recommend you to keep Eublaberus posticus and Eublaberus sp. "Ivory" together... It is better to avoid any possibility of hybridisation, even if you are going to use them as feeders, there is some risk in the practice... some of them accidentally could be putted back into the breeder container and contaminate the genetics of the others. I keep many of my colonies in community, some examples are: Lamproblatta albipalpus + Periplaneta australasiae Lamproblatta cf. gorgonis + Xestoblatta sp. Lamproblatta cf. ancistroides + Ischnoptera rufa Blaberus cf. discoidalis + Blaptica dubia Ischnoptera rufa (again) + Anaplecta parva Lanxoblatta cf. lata + Diploptera punctata Phortioeca phoraspoides + Elliptorhina chopardi 😄

    Surinam roaches

    Well... I used to use barks in the enclosures of Pycnoscelus spp. but it happened the same... They barely use them if all in the substrate is going well (no overpopulation) 🙂 Sometimes the barks even appeared completely buried in the substrate (I guess for the high activity of the roaches under it) At this moment I just keep them with a good layer of a light substrate (not less than 20 cm)... no food or water dishes, only substrate, and they are doing really well 😉
