  1. I use Repashy Bug Burger for my dubias that I feed to my leopard geckos. The dubias love it. Their 2nd favorite food is fish flakes. Carrots are a distant 3rd.
  2. No, the male does not glow because his diet does not include the bioluminescent fungi they would eat in the wild. I feed them dead oak leaves and carrots which, I think, is why the spots are so orange instead of yellow.
  3. Thought I would share pics of what those cute little nymphs turned into. Out of the 11 nymphs I bought from herpetologyfrk in February 2012, only 1 turned out to be male. He has been very busy, however, and I now have easily over 50 offspring !
  4. Kyle, this article and video was posted on USA TODAY today! You're famous! I am emailing the link to all my friends, saying, "See, I'm not the only person who loves cockroaches!"... hahahaha! Good job! http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2013/08/21/roach-man/2682823/
  5. Thanks for the link to that article, MrCrackerpants. I found it to be very interesting!
  6. Well, when i accidently cooked 2 roaches I think i was using 50% power and they didn't explode. Might just have to experiment.
  7. Hey, thanks for sharing this - I might give it a try I wonder if it would freeze well...like in ice cube trays...
  8. I uploaded this to youtube so you all could see it. I noticed an expelled ootheca in my Madagascan Hissing Cockroach enclosure and was about to discard it when I saw something move. To my surprise, there was a nymph wiggling a little bit so I grabbed my camera and started recording. I don't know how long the ootheca had been sitting there before I noticed it...probably only a few minutes I would guess. Hope this link works...it's my first time on youtube... https://www.youtube....Qk&feature=plcp
  9. Can anyone provide a link to the actual laws governing cockroach ownership in Tennessee and Florida? What government agency prohibits it? I am putting together a powerpoint presentation on the cockroach hobby for my turtle club and would like to include that information. Also, if you have a link to the actual law regarding the legality of shipping cockroaches through the mail, I'd like to include that. If anyone knows of other states that have restrictions and knows where to find the law, let me know. Thanks!
  10. Peter, if you click on someone's name to see their profile, the top half of the screen still contains all those weird characters, at least on my computer. I'm glad you got the rest of the problem fixed
  11. Yes, I just like it to be even - kinda OCD that way, I guess
  12. This is what I do: I apply the vaseline with a 2-inch wide foam brush that I got at Home Depot for less than $1. It allows you to spread it very thin and uniformly - the perfect barrier to climbing roaches.
  13. Thank you so much, Likebugs! I just read about them on the web - doesn't sound like anything I want to keep One landed on my son's shoe and he totally freaked and froze! ("Get it off !!!!! Get it off !!!!") LOL
  14. Found 2 of these in my backyard. One of them is already laying eggs in the container I caught it in. Any idea what they are?
