  1. One of my favorite species of cockroach that I house. These phenomenal insects keep me entertained whenever I sit and observe their behavior. The nymphs are my favorite, so innocent they are.
  2. I've actually had a similar "candy" packaged the same exact way and of the same consistency. I cant recall where they were from but they were definitely foreign. And pretty tastey too. I figure if I can eat them my roaches would.

    Hello all, I'm just double checking to make sure my assumptions are correct. In my moist roach enclosures, crawling along the walls are a decent amount of minute, white, semi slow moving "things". I say they're mites. Am I correct? I've tried my hardest to take out left over food and have even avoided giving certain foods to my roaches to prevent another outburst. Help! Signed, worried first time roach mom.
  4. That all makes sense! It makes me a little sad though. I was really excited. There was recently a mite problem and to take care of it I transferred all of my roaches to separate enclosures to thoroughly clean the original.
  5. My babies are having babies! I was pleased to actually see one of my surinam roaches complete making her ootheca, while another one was just beginning. It's a beautiful thing to watch and I hope to snap some macro shots of the process next time. In the mean time, these are my first ootheca to care for. Does any one have any tips on how to care for them? Should I take them out of the enclosure? Can I put them in a separate enclosure and if so what to they need to survive? Basic questions I'm sure, but just like any new roach parent, I'm nervous and would like to get it right the first time. Thanks in advance for your help!
  6. You guys are the best!!
  7. I'm completely interested in Blatticomposting. If you have any other sites to reference more about it please let me know!
  8. Thanks a bunch my fellow Minnesotan!
  9. I have yet to see my flathorn hissers chow down on anything I put in their enclosure. Has anyone found a favorite food item they enjoy?
  10. Hello world. I'm officially a roach hobbyist. I love roaches! I'm an undergrad majoring in entomology and I've always had a thing for insects. Look out for my posts. I'll be asking TONS of questions (seeing as I was never able to keep roaches as pets), I'll be needing a bit of advice. Von
