Blaptica Dubia Dying/Not eating

Recommended Posts

My blaptica dubia seem to be not eating i have the egg cartons on one side and then on the other side i have romain lettuce and some dog food/ dry mix. I do not want them to kill each other because they cant find food. how do i fix this. I think i found about 3-5 dead this week. Does anyone have any tricks on setting up a roach colony.

If you would post a pic of what you have set up, it would be really easy for some of us to see what the problem might be.

I would try some bananas also, they are strong smelling and should get the attention of your roaches, and they are soft to eat.

Hmm... From what I've heard from various people, B. dubia either do REALLY well and multiply quickly and en masse, or they don't eat and whither away.

Perhaps you should adjust the temps: try lower first, then try higher.

Great point. Try changing one variable in the cage and see if anything improves...
