Archimandrita tessellata escape


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a really BIG problem. I've accidentally left the terrarium open for entire night and my peppered roach (Archimandrita tessellata) has escaped. Of course, I can't find it. Is there any way to capture the roach without harming it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry to hear that, but my only suggestion (your only hope) is to carefully toss the entire room. Flipping, turning, and shaking out EVERYTHING in the room, starting near the enclosure and moving out in a radius. I would check window blinds and curtains first though

But it sounds like just one roach? If you didn't find it you're just out the price of the bug, not a big problem. 

Im assuming you may be a kid and if mom or dad find it first is the actual problem. In which case I wish you the best of luck.
