  1. Well I've bred Myrmecophilus without keeping them with ants, so I'm hoping I can do the same with the Myrmecoblatta, we'll see. I'm throwing everything I can at them diet wise.

  2. I suggest Lucihormetica subcincta or Lucihormetica verrucosa, they won't bother your allergies and can be kept more damp than the pantanal. They breed decently well if you have an established colony. Have you tried the other 3 Eublaberus species in captivity?

  3. So what I wonder is if perhaps a diet that would be similar to what that species of aunt would eat might be helpful or even necessary? I would definitely research that ant , Because it would appear to me that there’s something about the ant colony that is necessary for rearing. Ants in general Feed on a lot of sugary items. They also have a period where they switch over to protein-based food. I wouldn’t even go as far as to collect some of those ants and kill them and feed them to the roaches. You never know there could be something in the gut of that ant that is necessary. Speculation of cour

  4. My Panesthia angustipennis angustipennis males are very noisy! Once in a while one of them comes to the surface and starts making noise by hammerings with its abdomen on a piece of wood. The wood and the enclosure kind of resonates and enhances the noise. I manages to make an audio recording with my audio recorder (see attachement). There is a lot of bass to hear (it's a decent recorder), and it gives a good idea what I have to endure here I', pretty sure this is a way to attract females. My question: has anyone observed a similar thing? 20200308_Panesthia angustipe
