Eggcase (1/7)



  1. I have a lot of hissing cockroaches because my colony continues to breed. I'm 18 and will be going off to college next year, and while my parents are willing to take care of my roaches while I'm gone, they don't want the colony to continue growing. How do you deal with over-population? I'm open to euthanasia if there's an ethical way to do it. Thanks
  2. I've never kept Hissers personally (though hope to do so soon), so take my answer with a grain of salt. However, I found some answers online. According to this source, they start at 1/4 of an inch, but according to this other source, it's 1/2 of an inch. Hopefully somebody with more experience with Hissers can give you better info, since there seems to be a bit of contradictory info online.
  3. Has anyone had any luck finding any plants that aren't immediately eaten by roaches, and also won't poison and kill them if they do eat some? I'm very interested in trying a planted terrarium with roaches, but that seems very difficult with their mainly herbivorous diet. I have seen a few enclosures housing roaches with plants, but I have little knowledge of the longterm outcome or specific plant species used. One I saw had a Bromelia species of some kind, and the other I have really no idea, but I saw it at the Omaha Zoo alongside Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. It didn't look to be chewed on at all so I'm going to attach a picture below if anyone can ID it. Please let me know if you know of any roach safe plants, I'd highly appreciate it!
