  1. This is the F5 Generation of a breeding Program that I started September 2010 to see if I could isolate the yellow coloration in the Dubia population. I have had some success, but the quest still continues!
  2. My bearded dragon doesn't want the dubia I bought for feeders. They hide and don't move fast enough to hold his attention but I don't like crickets, they smell and are noisy. Any suggestions? Anyone willing to sell any? I can only find dubia and hissers on eBay :/
  3. Hey guys, new to the forum but have been keeping a Dubia Colony over the past year to feed our Bearded Dragons. Last year I scoured the internet for information on how to care for them and what type of enclosure to house them in. It's worked out pretty well so I recently made a video of the build process and uploaded it to YouTube. Let me know if you have any questions, or suggestions for modifications if I make more in the future. Thanks
  4. I'm new to this forum but needed to post this somewhere because to be honest I'm really bamboozled right now. I got my first pet cockroaches about a year ago, two male Madagascar hissers. Last August or so one died, so I went online and ordered 5 more males to keep the survivor company. They sent me 4 males, a female, and a female dubia. I emailed the seller and they were honestly quite amazing, offered to let me ship any females I didn't want for free and send replacement males. Just wanting some pets and not a multiplying colony, I sent back the female hisser but kept the dubia t
  5. Hello there, I've just take a look into my Blaptica dubia colony and I've found this... Anyone of you know what's happening here? Thank you very much for any info :-)
  6. I was told to post here by somebody from another site. If I need to change anything please let me know! Basically, I found one of my roaches with weird sacks where her wings would be. I have an album of images to show it. So far, people have suggested it to be problems inflating her wings, a parasite problem, and some kind of genetic strain. I'd like to see what you guys think of it. The album: http://imgur.com/a/5mBoZ The Reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/reptiles/comments/68ooyg/whats_up_with_my_dubia_roach/
  7. Dubia cockroaches Hi people, i could really do with some advice regarding breeding cockroaches. I've got my breeder tank set up and everything is going well. One problem I have encountered though which I cannot for the life of me find a solution to on the web is that of separating the exoskeletons from the tank. This is causing me a problem when trying to filter through the nymphs and other sizes as the cases block up the bucket and the adults seem to cling on the them. The way I have been doing it is singlehandedly separating them which is a very time consuming job as you can imagine.
  8. In a few days I'm going to be receiving a shipment of Eublaberus Posticus. How do these roaches compare to Blaptica Dubia? everything I have read about them says they grow and breed way faster than dubia is this true? I know these roaches need a lot more protein then most roaches can anyone share any pictures of how they keep these roaches.
  9. Hi! I've got a rather large (at least I think it is....?) colony of Dubias, and I'm not entirely sure if it's time to split them up. I've had them for about a year, but the initial count was extremely low so they're just now jumping off! Wondering if it's time to split the adults up, or maybe adults, nymphs, and juvies? I think my count is in the mid 300's.. not sure though!!! Any input would be greatly appreciated!
  10. So for those of you who've read my "yellow" dubia experiment thread, you may have noticed this photo of a "clear" or what is maybe "axanthic" male that I found in my colony, which I thought was a fluke: https://dl.dropboxus... 3 28 24 PM.jpg Since finding him, I've been keeping my eyes out for particularly light or more grey nymphs, and I'm happy to show off this collection of "clear" or "axanthic" (since they seem to have no yellow or orange, only the black melanin) adults. They have all had the same access to the same foods as my other roaches, and that includes carrots. No, they are not f
  11. Curious....wondering if an older female dubia will regularly discard her ooth simply because of age? I had started my first colony with an order of 80 or so adult Dubias (4-1 female to male) but waited 3 months with ZERO nymphs. I was obsessive with research, reading everything I could find for proper breeding conditions, tried all the tricks (I think) Repeatedly I saw aborted ooths, always dark brown in color, never light colored even when they were still protruding from the females. I finally gave up on that colony, sold them as feeders and bought large adults (1 molt from breeding) and
  12. I split my Dubia colony into two, i now have one tank for nymphs and a tank for adults, its been just over a month now and I've had no nymphs from my adults at all. I feed them mostly apple, carrot and a protein supplement called "BugGrub" could the acidic diet be stopping them from breeding? they never touch cucumber when i put it in their tank, I recently started using water crystal gel(Like yesterday), will this help? any tips? Please help!
  13. Hello! I'd like to say first that I am brand new to the forum, though I have been a long-time lurker because the information here is great. Anyway, the backstory to this is that I have owned a healthy feeder colony of B. dubia for three years now. I sourced them from a few places and at this point I've totally forgotten which. :/ Yesterday, when I was taking out a large number of nymphs to ship off to a friend, I noticed a roach that was nearly solid orange, and after a few minutes of looking, I found a couple more. The larger (female?) I found first https://www.dropbox.com/s/ff8sy5vartnr
  14. Hi, Frank Indiviglio here. I’m a herpetologist, zoologist, and book author, recently retired from a career spent at several zoos, aquariums, and museums, including over 20 years with the Bronx Zoo The orange-spotted or guyana roach, Blaptica dubia, often starts out as pet food but winds up as a pet. It’s small wonder, as these attractive insects are very interesting in their own right, and most agreeable to exhibiting their natural behaviors to the patient observer. Coming into Their Own Roaches are finally getting the attention they deserve from pet keepers, and even zoos are beginning to
  15. I started my Blaptica Dubia Colony about 4 months ago, first time doing anything like this. And I am now proud to say, I have 11 female, 5 males, and 64 Babies. Here are some Pictures!
  16. So I fed a Female Dubia to my girlfriends tarantula and it aborted an eggs sack. i'l remove the egg sack when shes done and take soome pictures, but what Should I do with it? Try to hatch them? HERES A PIC!!
  17. I've been doing my research into getting roaches, and finally found someone on craigslist that is getting rid of their colony as they have developed a severe allergy. This will be far cheaper than getting them from my local reptile shop, so my previous plan of just getting 6 or so to start is out and getting a decent amount is in. That being said, I'd like to try and keep the colony a manageable, stable size. How many should I start with? I should mention they are dubias. I presently have a bearded dragon, that eats about 2.5 dozen large crickets a week; a pair of leopard geckos that eat about
  18. So I've been making blueprints for an awesome home-built beardy cage, when I realized my plans included acrylic walls part way up, and I don't know if my new feeders (dubias) can climb acrylic. I know they can't climb glass or smooth plastic, but I know acrylic has tiny tiny pockets even though it is smooth to the touch. Can anyone tell me if they can or cannot. I'd like to find out before I do the build and then come home to find a colony of dubias in the living room
  19. So I just got my first roaches--a couple hundred dubia of mixed sizes. They are currently in the case that I picked them up in and should be fine in there for a few days while I get their future bin just the way I want it. I've been reading a lot about substrate and seems like it depends on a case by case basis whether or not to use it. I've been leaning towards using it. Although it can be more humid than florida in mn durinf our summers, it is very dry during our long winter. That was my main thinking in using a substrate. Also I was contemplating using the roach bin for springtail and isopo
  20. I have an extensive feeder colony of dubia roaches. There's no way for me to count them, but I know I have well over 20 adult females and thousands of offspring. I am planning to move from Phoenix, AZ (perfect for roaches) to Victoria, BC, Canada in the next 6 months and I need to know what steps I need to take to safely transport the dubias without killing them all. Currently, they live in an opaque plastic storage tub with cardboard egg cartons to live on. Does anyone have tips of how to make the 26 hour drive without harming the roaches? How do you keep them alive up north? Any advice
