  1. Hi I'm Maia. I keep chameleons and because of them I'm now an accidental gardener and amateur entomologist. I have various insects in my house including a roach bin. I never thought I'd become a member of a forum dedicated to roaches but here I am. Don't tell but some of these roaches are kinda cute. 1. Do you currently raise any roaches? Yes 2. If so, how many? 250 3. Do you culture roaches as pets or feeders? Feeders but I'd keep certain species as pets if the opportunity arose. 4. If feeders, what kinds? Dubia but looking for orange head. 5. Are there any specific roach questions that you would like to ask the community? Best place to buy, bought my dubia on Amazon but they don't have any orange head. 6. How did you find our community? Google
  2. Ok so I think orange head is going to be my next roach. How do you breed yours?
  3. I keep several species of chameleons, veiled, panther, and a baby melleri. I prefer roaches over crickets and I currently have a dubia colony. They're slow and my chams are not crazy about them. I do like that they can't climb so it makes cup feeding easy. I'd like a different species. One that is a little more active, easy to breed and maintain, and is large when fully grown. I'm going to need big feeders for my melleri once he's all grown up. I heard red runners can colonize. I can guarantee I will have escapees so I can't have anything with the potential to colonize. I was thinking orange head or green banana roaches. Hissers, though large, have too much chitin. Any thoughts or recommendation? Good places to purchase? Thanks.
