I have an extensive feeder colony of dubia roaches. There's no way for me to count them, but I know I have well over 20 adult females and thousands of offspring. I am planning to move from Phoenix, AZ (perfect for roaches) to Victoria, BC, Canada in the next 6 months and I need to know what steps I need to take to safely transport the dubias without killing them all. Currently, they live in an opaque plastic storage tub with cardboard egg cartons to live on.

Does anyone have tips of how to make the 26 hour drive without harming the roaches? How do you keep them alive up north? Any advice is more than welcome!

I believe that dubia are not permitted in Canada? There are extensive restrictions on insects that are allowed to be kept outside of research facilities up there. Doesn't mean people in Canada aren't breeding them quietly, but if you get searched at at he border you might have trouble.
