Dragon won't eat dubia, any suggestions? in Feeder Cockroaches Posted January 28, 2014 This is most certainly not a husbandry issue. This guy has an elaborate setup and a very healthy appetite for meal worms, crickets and greens. I got the dubia because I do not like the sound and smell of crickets, nor the cost in my area because here you have to pay major pet store prices and it's too cold to order online right now. So I purchased a dubia colony in hopes it would be a good alternative but he has no interest in them. He's kind of a finicky eater. He taste tests everything and will spit out what he doesn't like and him out for what he does.
