scaledverts Posted June 24, 2011 Share Posted June 24, 2011 Hello, In our lab we have two separate roach species that we use as feeders. We have both orange heads (Eublaberus prosticus) and dubia (Blaptica dubia). Well our lab assistants did not listen when I gave them detailed instructions regarding feeding time, keeping the colonies clean, etc. They have been mixing the orange heads and dubia into the same bins. To the best of my knowledge these two species cannot hybridize. However, even though they are different genera altogether I wanted to double check with you guys that these two species cannot hybridize in our bins. Now to the laborious task of separating 5 roach bins into their respective species. Unless they can hybridize then it will be pretty much pointless as I don't know how long they have been doing it. Thanks in advance for your help/opinions, Kyle Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
