Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I forgot all about this site and i just recently found the link to it.

I was wondering if there are any roaches that are good for feeders, easy to breed, and cheap to buy.

Usually I look for this:

- Soft bodied

- Easy to breed, preferably fast breeding

- Not too picky about temperature

- Not picky about food

- Good in nutrients and protein

- CHEAP

If there are any you would recommend that fits these characteristics, don't hesitate to say so.

Thanks !

Usually the selection of your feeders depends on what your doing with them. What are you going to be feeding them off to?

What size creatures are you catering too?

If you want roaches that almost replace crickets...lobsters are your ticket. They produce sizes ranging from 2 week old crickets up to full sized crickets.

If you want something much more meaty(which I can see if you keep assassins and large tarantulas) than dubia are your best bet. The nymphs start out about the size of peas.

Also, lobsters are faster/more active while dubia are more inclined towards burrowing/staying still. So for certain species(your mantids maybe?) lobsters would be more appropriate.
