  1. How long time do this species use to become adult? I have many many nymphs now.
  2. They like hiding places. Mine are more "calm" when they can hide and they havent tried to escape since then.
  3. What do the habitat for Blaptica dubia look like in the wild?
  4. Nice! How many cool (all of them are cool) species do you have now?
  5. I collected some Oniscus asellus from my garden. What do you think of their enclosure?
  6. Any new update about the roach?
  7. You could keep them in room temperature with no substrate. But they like moisture. Hiding places is important.
  8. One of my hissers figured out how to open a slide door with her head plate! Because of that I had to use another terrarium.
  9. I tried feeding mine grapes, and they love it!
  10. Is there something other than cat/dogfood or similar food that I can give my roaches. I have started having a mite problem...
  11. I am getting sundews, for they are easy, fast and cheap to grow. The sundews can only eat tiny nymphs, but it doesnt matter if I check the terrarium often for nymphs that they can eat!
  12. I have only two roach species now, so I don't think that will be a problem
  13. I think on using pitcher plants for the larger roaches, and use venus flytraps for the tiny nymphs.
  14. Idea for population control I do not mean to do this for fun, but only for controling my pet roach population. So I am sorry in advance if someone is disgusted by this... When my cockroaches will get many more than the few I have now, I will try an "experiment". Becuase I do not want to have too many, I am gonna feed them to carnivorous plants. I do not see how this is different from feeding cockroaches to scorpions or tarantulas.
  15. What is the longest time for an hisser cockroach being pregnant? One of my cockroaches have been pregnant for atleast 5 months
  16. Thanks for the great comment! I have seen the curting behaviour. The males do it more often when the females are not pregnant from my experience.
  17. What is the largest terrestrial isopod species?
  18. Are there any arthropod themed documentaries you recommend? Comment here I can start with Life in the Undergrowth.
  19. Interesting. I must try this sometime in the future.
  20. Wow. I am jealous becuase of the Macropanesthia rhinoceros! Thats a species that is almost impossible to get in my country
