  1. AGAIN THANKYOU ALL YOU ARE ALL SO AWESOME AND HELPFUL!!! Mine really didn't like the hamburger much, I may have over cooked it. But I just saw another batch of babies. They really seem to dig the frozen thawed pinky rats and mice ,so since that is working for me I think I will continue to use it. I buy in bulk for my snakes so it is not much an added expense. Just FYI, I am only feeding 3-4 FT pinky rats/mice at a time( every 10 days is what I plan) and removing the very small amount that is left ( not even recognizable as a rodent carcase, they even seem to eat the smaller bones!!!!proba
  2. Ok. The mite issue predatory mites ect ect .... I have a group of cave roaches and have just discovered dust mites in their cage. Fortunately they have been quarentined since I got them at the end of September. I just never moved them into the insect room ( THANK GOD). I have looked around and read about the predatory mites and other organic not toxic ways that would be harmless to the roaches.

  3. Hey everyone. First thanks for the help. I just saw a group of babies ( like 1/8 inch or just a touch bigger) So the adults must be eating. I also just made up some burgers for them. We will see how much they like them ...... Thanks again everyone you are all awesome!!!!!! :D ;D

I picked up some hamburger last night...I will cook it up for them for tonight. Thanks for your help
  5. I have abut 100 giant cave roaches, just turning into adults. They barely eat fruits ( apples oranges bananas ....) they sort of nibble the dry mix I use for my lobsters, lateralis, dubias, discoids, and hissers. The only thing I have seen them attack with any gusto is meat. I fed them some freezer burnt thawed pinky rats and they DEVOURED them. I have tried canned tunafish and they wouldn't touch it.... any suggestions ( heat 75-80 , humidity 65-75...daily mistings. substrate coco fiber bedding .. ) Any suggestions ???
  6. Well, hello. I just browsed this forum for about 10 minutes and it is definitely an EXCELLENT forum. I am glad i found it through the mantid forum. About me? Well i had a Madagascar hisser as a kid. That was quite awhile ago. I currently have quite a few snakes, lizards and frogs. I also have 5 species of roach and 2 more on the list. I am interested in breeding roaches mainly for reptile food, although i recognize the enthusiast aspect as well. I received my lobster roaches around feb of this year or as early as nov of last year. I will have to look. From there i jumped on the blatta
