Room Temp

Recommended Posts

I have researched many conflicting information on Dubia roaches and room temperature. (I know you need a heat mat for maximum breeding results). The question I pose to ask is, Can dubia roaches breed at room temperature? say around 70F to 75F. without additional heating. I want my roaches to breed slower due to the low amount of animals I have to feed them off. (I already cull extras by freezing them and using them another day/ and also give some away. But without going into all the detail, its just a simple question, can they breed "at all" in room temp?

 

Thanks!

And I love this forum, im so addicted.

From what I've heard, yes, they can breed at room temperature, albeit not as fast as when kept hotter.

Mine continue breeding down into the 60's. I've had no additional heat sources on them for the last 3 years. My classroom will get below 60 sometimes too. The roaches just carry on. I'm not sure how much actual breeding might happen at that temp, but they tolerate it well enough.
