  1. Does anyone know how to ship internationally and the laws for this and/or services that allow this type of shipping? I am sure if illegal, people find a way as so many are obviously here, but I was hoping to find a legal way to do so and what are the best way's to package for such a thing.
  2. The only thing is how they kill a host. It seems they must do this to keep the life cycle going. I would think to a large roach it might be similar to a spider bite for us, especially the species I mentioned, as their target host seems to not be roaches. But it still sounds like a sketchy test.
  3. More of an investigation, as phorid flies seem to be a common pest that destroys many collections due to transfer of disease. It would be interesting to verify if safe among roach colonies. I get these flies when ordering crickets, so sometimes they pop up.
  4. Anyone have experience with these... http://www.arbico-organics.com/product/nemattack-beneficial-nematodes-sf-steinernema-feltiae/beneficial-nematodes2 or something similar. I see they say they go for roaches, but other research focuses more on gnats and phorid flies.
  5. Any image format works for me. You can keep the water mark or I can add at bottom of image whenever I use.
  6. Hi Inkie, you can email me zipped pics or shared from dropbox, whatever you have. I would also consider an "Other Roaches" for sale section, but will need pics and a short info to add them. RomanBuck, I believe I have that mix too! I have proven that Wide-horns did get introduced from the seller, and based on color I believe Tigers.
  7. @RomanBuck that is the one thing I have thousands of, and have grouped them depending if buyer wants large or small feeders. I am actually hoping to offer pure lineages if you have any of those.
  8. I have added a link to this forum and will actually clean that up in the future, maybe adding to top menu. If you want to contact me directly with any info I can get mail -> shane@hissingroach.farm
  9. Hi roach enthusiasts! I am still building up my hissing roach website @ HissingRoach.Farm and my collection. I am looking for pictures and adding content when I can. Please let me know what you think, and offer any pics or advice. I have worked with a couple gecko geneses in the past, and for some reason sticking with a genus, class or group of animals is the most fulfilling. Though new and still learning about roaches, I hope to make a positive impact on the community and show these magnificent creatures in the most appealing way, as we know the rest of the world gets grossed out. So trying to gather pictures and information that reflect that. To encourage the help, please offer any information on what you have for sale and I can add to my site, then redirect customers to you.
  10. I actually stopped using dog food as my feeder roaches get a better quality food, so figured I will do the same for the high-end roaches. I tried soy protein in the mix and they don't like much, so now whey protein.
  11. I will have to look at them in more detail. The wide horns as a group are much bigger and maybe they just started out a bit older/larger, just enough to get ahead start.
  12. Anyone notice flat horns eating less than others or having different heat requirements? I am growing some out alongside (same type of bin/ heat) as some wide horns. The wide horns are eating 5 times or my the qty of food. I am mixing 6 grains with a few other powder supplements including bee polin. Also notice the lack of eating when I add a banana.
  13. Hissers on my mind.

  14. Are those black ones in the same clutches and do they seem flatter and wider, at least as nymphs? I ask because I have nymphs like this and concerned if hybrid.
  15. Have you ever seen Wide Horns that look flat and are shorter/wider than the others in pure linage? The second pic down looks very much like an Aeluropoda nymph, except the stripes on the shoulder area are the white / off white instead of a redish color.
  16. Take a look at the ones I circled. Most do look like wide horns, but a few look very flat and darker. I got them as smaller nymphs from someone on the site as wide horns and they also sold me a group of Flat Horns, so I wonder if either some got mixed in, or they are actual hybrids. Unfortunately these guys don't look exactly like the Flat Horns I got, those do look more pure linage. Here are some more close ups of what are supposed to be G. oblongonota zoomed in...
  17. I would be interested why nuts are bad for "bugs". I feed a powder mix of grains and soy flour daily along with a weekly wet mix of fruits and vegies.
  18. Interesting, I see how the Gromphadorhina spp. / Hissing cockroach is generalized. That makes it easy for at least shipping purposes.
