  1. The centipedes might eat baby roaches (but maybe you want that?). And many kinds of roaches might nibble at the whipscorpions and stress them out.
  2. If you see them while mowing the grass occasionally, then I would consider this species kind of common where you are in Florida. But in other states farther north they might be rare.
  3. Welcome. "Fluffy" is a funny name for a big scorpion.
  4. Oh yeah! I forgot they are already in the hobby!
  5. The big Blaberidae (Blaberus and the Archimandrita and Hisser) might live about 2 or so years for adult females, but adult males having a much shorter life span probably. As nymphs they can grow much slower if kept at low temperatures, so I'm wondering if it would take over a year or even much longer to mature from nymph if kept artificially at cool temps even during summer time. Not sure if they would do alright for a long time at cool temperatures or if they would really stop growing or just grow much slower because I haven't tried it. I don't know about the other kinds of roaches. The adult males of Parcoblatta species I have had had a very short life span. It's getting close to two years for one male Blaberus chacoensis nymph to become adult since I got him from Kyle Kandilian. A wild guess I maybe got him when he was around 3rd instar.
  6. Don't forget about Parcoblatta zebra and Parcoblatta divisa!
  7. After getting both sexes to adult they will probably be easy for you to tell by just looking at how wide the female's abdomen is compared to the males.
  8. Did you take a look at the editing place to get notifications?

    Welcome to roachforum.
  10. Thank you for showing us these photos!
  11. Would Hemithyrsocera "histrio" (H. vittata?) be good?
  12. Some of these, that is if you can get them... lol http://www.biolib.cz...allery/dir2034/ Are Ectobiidae sp. "Malaysia" very active during the day?
  13. Sorry for your roach problem. Have you tried cooling the house down a few times and placing a warm thing in there for the roaches to gather/hide around? You might be able to kill some like that... not sure if it would work that well. They are B. germanica right?
  14. You are right. They are crinkled instead of bubble wings.
  15. The german roaches infested in our house has adult females with bubble like wings, and they tend to be dark colored. I thought it was the roach poisons to treat them that made them mutants ...
  16. Happy Birthday!!

  17. That's just the name I or Alan (User: Cariblatta) gave it. Alan thinks it is not a P. fulvescens (me too) and they are definitely not true P. caudelli. Alan pointed out that this was an interesting roach. At first he thought that they might be P. caudelli from the median segment and first abdominal segment modified structures (two pairs of dots on those two segments), but then he found some true P. caudelli, and a friend of his caught a mated adult female true P. caudelli form Torreya, FL, so now he has those breeding, too. These "possible caudelli" have been misidentified as P. fulvescens (adult females) and P. caudelli (adult males) here in NC and other areas in the US in the past I think. P. fulvescens from my area tend to be larger as adult females (just two or three adult females I have seen, while seeing plenty of adult females of possible caudelli), and supranal plate for adult females of P. fulvescens is longer I think, (I looked at an adult female, and Alan looked at his, not sure how many). Their cerci might be different colour usually (not sure if this would be a reliable way to tell them apart), P. fulvescens adult females having black cerci while all the "possible caudelli" adult females I remember seeing from my area had a lighter, brownish cerci. There might be exceptions though... Alan Jeon probably already knows how to distinguish them, he might write some distinguishing features between those two roaches here.
