  1. Hi there, it sounds like they are too dry and too cold. I've been keeping my colony at 85 hot side of tank, 72 cold side of tank. They are on a mixture of coconut bedding and peat. One side I keep pretty moist the other fairly dry. (usually spray twice a week). There is also egg crate in the cage for them to hide in. I haven't had any fatalities so far (3 + months) and they are producing egg cases like crazy! Hope that helps. Nicole
  2. Some parrots LOVE hot peppers and they have a great vitamin content!
  3. These guys are one of my favorite species. The adults have really cool markings and I like their white heads Nicole
  4. Hi Matt, I've never heard of Oxyhaloa duesta and couldn't find any info on the web...does this species have a common name and/or can you link a photo perhaps? thank you _____________________ Nicole Chaney www.stickytoegecko.com
  5. While visiting my family in Maui, HI, I found a 'colony' of these in my father's shed. It appears superficially to be N. rhombifolia....what do you think? __________________ Nicole Chaney www.stickytoegecko.com
  6. Raising roaches first began as a means to feed my huge colony of Rhacodactylus and Nephrurus sp geckos and tarantulas. I started with B. dubia and B. lateralis. As time passed I found the quite fascinating and wanted to collect more! I've always been a 'bug person'...my favorites being mantids and beetles, but the availability and ability to raise multiple generations with ease is limited. So raising roaches has become just another facet of my hobby/business. Nicole
  7. Hi all! here's a few pics of some of my colonies. I'll post more pics as my other colonies grow! Enjoy B. dubia female L. subcincta pair (still establishing) E. decipiens colony T. petiveriana colony ___________________________ Nicole Chaney www.stickytoegecko.com (in the process of complete overhaul)
  8. Ive seen both names used for the "Tiger Hisser".....is it Gromphadorhina grandidieri or Princisia vanwaerebecki?
  9. found this pic online! anyone know the species? I believe it is from Panama? © John Pickering, 2006-2007 cockroach
  10. Hi there, was wondering if anyone had care information on these two species?
  11. Hi Graham, I currently use the Crested Geckos (and other Rhacodactylus diets) to feed my roach colonies (Dominos, B. dubia, lateralis, E. decipiens). They love the stuff and you can feed it wet or dry. Here are the ingredients of the 'standard' Crested gecko diet: (Calcium caseinate, banana powder, honey powder, Hempola hempseed meal, bee pollen, alfalfa leaf meal, defatted wheat germ meal, brewers yeast, fig powder, calcium carbonate, dicalcium phosphate, yeast culture, spirulina algae, rosehips powder, kelp meal, haemotococcus algae, marigold extract, rosemary extract, yucca extract, natural mixed tocopherols (as a preservative), vitamin A acetate, d-activated animal sterol (source of vitamin D3), dried aspergillus oryzae fermentation extract, dried aspergillus niger fermentation extract, dried lactobacillus fermentation product, dried bifidobacterium thermophilum fermentation product, dried bifidobacterium longum fermentation product, dried enterococcus faecium fermentation product and dried bacillus subtilis fermentation product.) it might be worth a try! _________________ Nicole Chaney www.stickytoegecko.com
  12. Thought I'd share some results I've had with the Repashy superfoods brand gecko diets (for Rhacodactylus geckos). I breed geckos so I have a lot of extra food laying around. I feed my collection of B. dubia (Guyana orange spots), T. petriveriana (Dominos) , E. decipiens(Costa Rican Zebra), and B. lateralis (Turkistan roach) this diet as a staple in addition to oak leaves, fruits, and veggies. The nutritional content in these diets is outstanding and it also makes a great gutload as well for the feeder type roaches. _________________________ Nicole Chaney www.stickytoegecko.com
  13. Hi everyone, I was wondering if some of you could share the methods and techniques for breeding this species? (ie substrate, temps, food, humidity) thanks!
