  1. Today my Red Runners/Turkistan Roaches and Orangehead roaches arrived. All over them are great healthy animals. The Orangeheads will not climb sterilite containers much like the Giant Caves but the Turkistans will climb up the walls of sterilite containers with ease. I put packing tape border on the inside of each sterilite container , it stops all the climbing roaches in their tracks, the tape is too slick for them. My guess is probably a weekly wipe down to keep the take smooth , clean and slippery. My guess is, if you use Turkistan Roaches as feeders in an aquarium tank , they can not climb glass but can climb the silicone corners in the aquariums. I would probably suggest neatly covering the silicone corners/edges inside the aquariums with packing tape and keeping the tape clean on a weekly basis or as needed. Perhaps this will prevent any escapees . The orangeheads are really an attractive roach, the turkistans---not so much !! But I feel great the turkistans will make an awesome feeder roach. I found some " pet " roaches and a few other " feeder " roaches species on a different website that I will be ordering very soon. Keeping roaches is an unusual hobby and not the most politically correct hobby with the peers..In a weird way you get sucked into it and it's very enjoyable / fun hobby to take on. I'll have to admit, I'm in the closet with my peers when it comes to " having roaches as feeders and pets " ....
