Roaches for Arboreal Enclosures


Recommended Posts

I have two tall enclosures roughly 4"W x 8"L x 12"H. The dimensions would make them good for a smallish arboreal invert or colony and I am playing with different ideas. They are gasket sealing containers that I have not added ventilation to yet, so I can adjust as needed when I settle on species. 

What are your favorite roaches that like to spend time up off the ground?

I don't have the experience with many different arboreal species, but I have my Oxyhaloa duesta in a very similar-sounding container. They're usually out in the open, chilling out on twigs and bark, don't seem to burrow at all.

Heh, those are two genera I was planning to expand my arboreal experience with! As far as I know (which is what other people have said) Panchlora nymphs burrow, the adults will be visible, and all stages of Hemithyrsocera will be visible.

Check out @Martin's blog post about H. vittata, especially what they're doing in the photos at the bottom.
