  1. Hello, 1 Macropanesthia rhinoceros 2 Megaloblatta blaberoides (I know they aren´t in the hobby now) 3 Lucihormetica verrucosa 4 Therea petiveriana 5 Archiblatta hoeveni Best regards, Javier.
  2. Thanks Matt! I´m sure that she´s eating. Thanks a lot, I´ll try them again in December. Best regards, Javier.
  3. Hello! Matt, your post is great! I buyed 3 pairs of M. rhinoceros but I made some mistakes and, in Spain now, is very hot and the bug´s room got very hot. Now, I have only a female . I´ll try again in December. Now, I´m keeping her with 1 inch of dry coco fiber and 1 inch of dry oak leaves. I give her small pieces of bananas or apples once a week and the cage has a very small dich with water. The temperature is 26ºC (78F more or less). It seems to be ok but, Matt, Orin, do you think that I´m in a mistake? Thank you very much! Best regards, Javier.
  4. Hello, Do you want them to ship to the US? I only know 2 dealers, but I think there are more. Best regards, Javier.
  5. Hello, Zephyr, you´re lucky man! . I have a question: how long are Archiblatta hoeveni? I think they´re as long as medium G. portentosa (2 inches). Best regards, Javier.
  6. Hello, My B. dubia and B. craniifer "BW" have no sustrate and they do very well. I buyed 100 dubias and now I have 1.000 small dubias more . Best regards, Javier.
  7. Hello, I thought T. petiveriana was bigger, like B. dubia. Also, I had the same "problem" with G. lurida. Have you spected a smaller roach and then, was bigger? Best regards, Javier.
  8. Hello, I have an 100 B. craniifer "BW" colony and they don´t have substrate. First, I kept them whit substrate, but it was less hygienic. Now, I´m keeping them without it and they are growing well. Best regards, Javier.

  10. Hello, Thanks Orin, I didn´t remember. I have a little colony of them and ninphs love burrowing and they don´t clim. Best regards, Javier.
  11. Hello, Ralph, Panchlora nivea (Green Banana Roaches) can climb glass and plastic cages . Best regards, Javier.
  12. Hello, Substrate isn´t necesary, I keep my Madagascar hissing roaches without substrate and they´re ok. Best regards, Javier.
  13. Hello, I read an article who said that roaches can recognize sounds or something else like Pavlov´s dogs. I try it: I hit softly the cage when I´m going to feed them. When the roaches look and smell the fruti, the run to eat it. One month later, I hit softly the cage, and the roaches run all over the cage looking for food It´s so funny! Best regards, Javier.
  14. Hello, If you want a no-burrowing and cool roach try Neostylopyga rhombifolia. They´re great . Best regards, Javier.
  15. Hello, So, if your problem is burroging roaches, use Blatta lateralis, they don´t burrow. Best regards, Javier.
  16. Hello, You can feed them with Blatta lateralis (turkestan roaches) or Nauphoeta cinerea (Lobster roaches). Their size is like crickets. Best regards, Javier.
  17. Hello, A subadult hisser is 5-6 cm (2 inches) long and 2,5 (1 inch) across. I think yours are juvenile. Best regards, Javier.
  18. Hello, Well, I have a very large colony, 70 roaches more or less, from little nynphs to adults Best regards, Javier.
  19. Hello, Orin: No I didn´t, they digged in the substrate and put them on it. The females covered the oothecae with some substrate. Matt K: sorry, I don´t write English very well . My problem is: the oothecae get bad and didn´t hatched and I want to know if I have to do something special with them. Thank yoy very much Best regards, Javier.
  20. Hello, Maybe Periplaneta sp.? I don´t know very well, sorry . Does anybody has a identification key? Best regards, Javier.
  21. They´re great! I have a big colony of them and I like seeing them molting. Best regards, Javier.
  22. Hi! Well, I keep E. opaca and Blattidae sp. "Sri Lanka". I want to know if the oothecae need special cares (humidity, temperature). I keep the adults and ninph with egg cartons, water in a little bottle, fruits and veggies (apples, some tomatoes and bananas), dog food and 1" of substrate (dry coco fiber). It´s somethig wrong? The roaches live and grow well, the problems are the oothecae. Thank you very much! Best regards, Javier.
  23. You´re welcome! Are you going to raise your roach collection? Best regards, Javier.
  24. Great roaches Maarten! My Dubia colony started growing a week ago: about 100 new roaches Yours are pretty too Best regards, Javier.
  25. Hehehe, just like me . This weekend I´ll start building a cupboard for the roaches, I´ll post photos of it. Best regards, Javier.
