Room temp roaches.

Recommended Posts

My question is pretty straightforward. Are there any good feeder roaches that can survive, and breed at room temp? It doesn't have to be extremely fast, I have one tarantula at the moment, but I'd like to expand my collection in the future. Currently I have mealworms going, but I'm afraid they wont be big enough in the future.

My first colony of Blaberus giganteus bred fine at 72-75-degrees Fahrenheit. I do not have experience with other blaberids, but it might be worth looking into some of the smaller members of that genus, although B. giganteus is also fine as a feeder.

Orangeheads…..I have huge colonies that have never had supplemental heat. They actually generate their own heat.....

I have never seen such high densities of roaches!

That is incredible! And to think I'm down to three specimens...do you sell 🤣?

Just kidding, I'm running low on invertebrate cash right now with a bunch of other projects going on...

Thanks,

Well, shipping prices went up where I am (though I need to check with the actual post office and not just the local private mailing center), and I already have done quite a few trades recently, so I need to conserve what funds I have.

Now that you brought it up however, why do you ask?

Thanks,

I was not alluding to anything in particular, but you have many amazing species. I do not know what you would be willing to trade, though, so I am not going to start asking about every species. Do you have a trade list somewhere of species you would like to trade?
