Camel crickets living with roaches

Recommended Posts

Is this a bad idea? I found a cool looking camel cricket today and would like to put it in with my roaches, but I don't know if it will be predatory or not.

From my experience with crickets way back when...they will eat anything (including young or freshly molted roaches) and camels in general have a very strong defensive kick that could potentially injure smaller roaches. I would keep them separate personally.

I've found them living with Parcoblatta in the wild, but it probably isn't completely safe. Somebody molting would undoubtedly get eaten (that goes for the cricket too).
