  1. Do Rhino Roaches eat other leaves other than Eucalyptus ? Do they eat anything else other than leaves, ie. veggies/fruits , dried dog/cat food ? If all they eat is Eucalyptus then I'll have to order them online by the lbs... LOL

  2. I just reread my post , LOL ..sorry for the confusion ... I meant to type ... I switched from an organic dog/cat food to a very cheap non organic food....

    Anyways ........... I cleaned out and sterilized all the containers as well as did a good sweeping in the garage in which the roaches are kept.. The mites haven't appeared .. hopefully I killed their eggs and there wont be a mite cycle .....

  3. Yup this is deffo the 2nd worse thing to ever happen !!!!! But luckly you're not in Hawaii and I do believe Cali winters are still abit cold for lobsters , if anything else , possibly too dry.... had the Lats escaped, you might as well put the house up on the market !!

  4. Just received 36 adult Domino Roaches and would like to display these somewhat hard to find roaches .. anyone have experience with these? and I'd love to see enclosure pictures to get an idea ....

    I'm thinking a 10 gallon with leaves , rotting wood and maybe a pothos ivy ....

  5. I switched to a non organic dog food / cat food ( high veggie based ) to a very cheap Nonorganic and a month later I've got these micro tiny white mites all over the containers .. they don't seem to bother the roaches or stress them ... it is just a nuisance and annoying .... anyone experience with this ?

    I threw out ALL the food and washed all the food bowls and container that I store the foods in.... I will be switching back to organic!!

    Any thoughts and help ......

  6. I agree with Forcep ... dead leaves and rotting wood is really a BIG THING !!!! If I forget to feed my roaches lettuce , oranges or apples one week.... they always have about 3 inch layer of dead leaves and a handful of medium/small size rotting wood.... as much protein hissers and giant cave roaches like .... they seem to really eat a lot of the leaves and wood.... just a thought....

  7. My lats are pretty darn fast ! They jump and do back flips when you try to catch them... I should had never ordered 2000 !!!! I'm going to give my colony away and get lobster roaches .... I've been paranoid since I got them that they might escape and establish , at least the lobsters wont become pesty. Good Luck with your Lats !

  8. I've tried to google / bing information on how B. discoidales and A. tesselata live about their days in the field/wild .... What temps do these two species like best ? Are B. discoidales found in caves ? Do A. tesselata live on the forest floor with rotting wood and vegetation ? Do any of these two species like more protein in their diet ? What country and particular area ? What animals predation on these roaches ? and any other interesting information about either of these two species ........... thanks !
