New roach colonies wanted

Recommended Posts


I currently have a colony of hissing cockroaches and a colony of dubia roaches but I am looking to start two more colonies of larger roaches and was recommended coming to this site to find someone to get them from.

I have already decided I want a large number of orange head cockroaches, and I'm pretty sure I want the second species to be ivory head cockroaches. I was considering also dwarf cave cockroaches. Someone had contacted me about orange and ivory head roaches and told me they'd get a price shortly, but that was three weeks ago. Does anyone on here sell those two species in bulk? I'd like to have a second or even third person on my list to purchase from, as I do still intend to buy from the first person who contacted me too. I'm probably being overly cautious about inbreeding that Im not even sure is an issue with roaches, but I want to diversify my colonies bloodlines too. 


I have 2 Savannah monitors, 2 Nile monitors, an Argentine tegu, an Asian water monitor and am looking to add a pair of Australian frilled lizards to my family as well. My hissers and dubia are pumping out a TON of babies for me, but the hissers take forever to grow and my dubia colony is only a few months old now so even with almost 200 breeding females they just can't handle being the main diet on their own

I’d rocommend lobster roaches, they aren’t huge, but they breed like crazy! I got Dubias thinking they’d be enough for my frog (I got 100 of them!) but they declined very quickly. However, despite being pretty much the only thing I use for feeders for everything, my lobster roaches have been on the rise (I started with 200) and might have doubled (?) since I got them.
