  1. Matt, your roach installation is great! I hope to build some cupboards for my roaches this summer. Best regards, Javier.
  2. My S. tartara (Blatta lateralis) don´t like Kiwi. Best regards, Javier.
  3. My enclosure with some of them (the other ones are in the substrate): They have some babies yesterday!!! I hope to increase my colony, they´re great roaches, I like them! I buyed them a year ago, they were juvenile ninphs, so they need too much time to be adult roaches. Best regards, Javier.
  4. Hello! Keep them in a plastic box 8"x4" more or less with 2 inches of coco fiber. Keep them with 70% humidity and give them some fruits: oranges, apples..... They seem to eat a lot because you only have 3 roaches. Best regards, Javier.
  5. I´m agree with EffeCi, I keep P. nivea with high levels of humidity. I lost 90% of my P. nivea colony a month ago because the humidity levels were low. Good luck with them! Best regards, Javier.
  6. Hi! I found these little guys yesterday: B. craniifer "Black Wings": Blattidae sp. "Sri Lanka", the first one was born yesterday and the last one was born on December: These ones hatched after 5 months: It´s an Eurycotis opaca, I have few of them. Comparation between oothecae, the first one is Blattidae sp. "Sri Lanka" and the second one is E. opaca: Now, I´m improving my enclosures for giving them the best. Best regards, Javier.
  7. I love these roaches. They´re from Costa Rica, isn´t it? Best regards, Javier.
  8. Wow! Great photos and beautiful roaches! A spanish friend have some of G. lurida and they´re so cute. Best regards, Javier.
  9. Me too! Also, they can kill the roaches, I had bad experiences with them . Best regards, Javier.
  10. Hello, I have both roaches. I prefer B. lateralis because they are non-climbers, but you can use olive oil for Lobster, Turks are easier to Sex and they are faster. Best regards, Javier.
  11. Hi! You can also use Shelfordella tartara (Blatta lateralis): easy to keep, easy to breed and cheap. Best regards, Javier.
  12. Hey! These photos are mine: http://www.bidabug.org/Forum/index.php?sho...&hl=pallida Thanks Huntsman and Matt K . Sexing P. pallida is difficult because they are very small . I have to take some new photos of my P. pallida because I have many babies . Best regards, Javier.
  13. Hi, Well, R. maderae doesn´t left ooths, they´re livebearers. I think the small roaches are dead . Best regards, Javier.
  14. Hi! I keep them without substrate and they breed very well . They are a very good climber roaches and they´re livebearers too. Best regards, Javier.
  15. Hello! They´re B. fumigata, I have B. rothi and they´re bigger and have different colours. Best regards, Javier.
  16. Welcome Maarten! You have a very nice roaches . My uncle lives in Brussels and I go to Belgium once a year. We can meet if you want, I think I will go in summer. Best regards, Javier.
  17. Hi! I have E. capucina and they are very easy to keep. Good luck with them! Best regards, Javier.
  18. Hi! I give them fruit 3 times a week and dry food 4 times a week. Best regards, Javier
  19. Hi! For example, P. nivea needs too much humidity, about 80%. I have a colony of them and many of the nynph died when I forgot (for 2 days) to give them some water. Best regards, Javier.
  20. Hi! I use olive oil and sunflower seeds oil for P. nivea and G. portentosa and they works very well. I have a question about teflon paint: is it toxic? Best regards, Javier
  21. Hi! Thanks Graham, they are very active . Keith, Eucalyptus leaves it isn´t necesary in their diet, you can also give them oak leaves, like me. There are many species of Eucalyptus and many of them are toxic and can kill our roaches . Best regards, Javier.
  22. Hi! I love E. opaca, I have them and they are very beautiful, like yours. EffeCi, I´ll probably ask Joerg for many roaches in February more or less. Best regards, Javier
  23. Hi! I have a 40 A. tesselata colony, some of the females are very fat : Best regards, Javier.
  24. Hi! I´m back again, I was too busy sorry. I bought them in a fair (Hamm, December 2007 edition) from Peter Grawobich: www.polyped.de I fall in love with them Another male: I have 3 pairs: 3 males and 3 females. I put each pair in a 16x12x12 (inches) plastic cage and I´m giving them orange, apple and dog food. Best regards, Javier
