  1. Can anyone help me ID this little one?
  2. So I was doing a little more reading on sexing them and came across some posts talking about sexing nymphs by the last segment of there body like Hisserdude showed in this post. I looked through my set and seems if its true that you can sex dubia like this to I only got 2-3 females in the set :/ Guess if that's the case the person I got them from tried only giving me males. I wouldn't be to surprised if they did. This set (large nymphs) was just not the greatest experience. My 1st set (from a different person) was great ordered 250(tiny nymphs) got over 300 and only 1 died. This set
  3. Thank you guys. I I know with some they all look very alike so with such a difference I just wanted to make sure. I'm guessing that is because there more a feeder species then a pet so they don't breed only a specific pattern? It looks like I have 20 males and no females yet. I was thinking that was a nymph look but my bf fond something online saying different and I didn't want to believe I still have no females with so many male. I fond a nice picture of a female now. Is it normal to get so many males with no females? I started with 60 large nymphs have 20 male, 0 female.
  4. Some of my dubia molted in to adults and some of them are making me question if there all really dubia. #1 seems to have a mask on the back of its head #2 and 4 have a few dos but mostly black #3 is all black #5 has a large light brown spot #6 looks more like a lvory and again has more of a design on it. also #7-10 are in fact adult females right?
  5. I was looking (at roachcrossing) to get some more roaches pets and/or feeders and would like some options on a few. Differences, similarities, Housing, Size, Speed of growth, activity level, personality, difficulty/easy of keeping, stuff like that. Blaberus fusca Says it's a nice feeder and I think they look cool. Think all of these look cool. Blaberus colosseus "Peru/Ecuador" Says there easy to care for and shy but ok to handle Blabrus atropos "Florida" Again says good feeder but not much more info. Then for more of a pet roach I was looking at th
  6. Thank you guys for the reply. I think for now I'll still keep 3 separate containers. 2 for 2 different breeders and one with a few feeders so I dont have to bug my main 2 containers as much. 1st set I started with around 300 very small nymphs, a hand full which are now pushing 1inch 2nd set I'm getting is a mix of 1inch to sub adults(dont know if you use that term with roaches). That way if one of them seems weaker then the other or I have a problem with one I still hopefully have a healthy container. Then my little shoe box of around 20-30 nymphs for feeding
  7. How would this cat food be for my roaches? I'm also feeding them these dry foods mixed up: Y.S. ORGANIC BEE FARMS Bee Pollen, Millville whole grain Honey Nut Crispy Oats, Simply Nature organic Oats & Honey granola, And Cobalt tropical flakes As well as these fresh: tangerines, carrots, collard greens and kale How does all that sound would you add or take anything out? I was thinking of buying some chicken and or bunny food to mix in but not sure so haven't yet. I should add there both pets and feeders for ta
  8. I was reading/watching a little about breeding roaches and that you sometimes needed to add new blood or they start dying off. I can fully understand that being true but leaves me with a few questions. 1: How often should you add new blood? 2: Is it best to go with males, female or just random babies to mix in? 3: If I were to get a group of 100 now (from the same place) and split them in two different breeding bins if I were to mix them down the road would that be like adding new blood or would they still be to closely related? Also can someone tell me or point me t
