  1. I have been informed Dubias are slower breeders then Polymorphic and Discoid. Does anybody agree.
  2. Which one is a faster breeder? also wich one is the larger of the two. Also, what is the fastest and largest breeding roach? Bigger then dubia.
  3. Oh' I didn't think of that. Thank for the info. I'll be keeping them separated.
  4. I am wanting to no If I can put the Archimandrita tesselata (Giant Peppered Roach) and the Blaberus atropos (Polymorphic Roach) together. I don't want them to breed, I just want the peppered roach to mature before I display them. I have about a dozen peppered and maybe four dozen Polymorphic Roach.
  5. That was interesting. thanks for the article. I was surprised that 10k a year is considered wealthy over there.
  6. So I have 296 Adult (yes I counted them) and about 1000 nymph Dubias. I noticed for the past 4 months I've had them both adults and nymphs eat only veggies. I put the roach chow (blended dog food, oats, rabbit food) in a pile in the corner of the tote next, to that is the veggies then, comes water gels. When I put a hand full of veggies in at night it's gone but, the roach chow isn't touched. I thought they needed the protein to survive. Maybe, they need less of it to fill up. I think I will limit them to 3 times a week for veggies. To see if they eat more chow. Has anybody else noticed this? Also, In the past 4 months I've had 60 adult females and 44 adult males die. Is this normal? Maybe, because they aren't eating the roach chow? It could also be because they died of old age. I purchased them from a guy locally. I should mention the adults are in a separate bin then the nymphs. I use a heating pad which gets 95°on the bottom and an ambient temperature of 75-80°. The Humidity is 55° Any thought or ideas would be appreciated.
  7. ok never mind.. The company is no longer selling the Turkish roaches.
  8. U can purchase some if you really want them.
  9. I just want to say thanks for the info. I've been having a hard time finding how to hatch Lateralis egg casings. I will be ordering 3000 sub adult for 45 delivered. I figure I can't go wrong seeing how they are cheaper then crickets. Before anybody says anything I already have Dubia but they are breeding to slow.
  10. Thanks everybody for the info. I ended up purchasing a used blender for 5.00 bucks. The 500 watt blender is working well.
  11. no updates in four years. It must of been nothing.
