jebbewocky Posted April 22, 2012 Share Posted April 22, 2012 Nothing serious, so far, but I've developed an allergy to dubia, or possibly their frass, or a bacteria on their skin. Just taking them out to feed my tarantulas results in hives. I keep forgetting to wear gloves, which would probably help, but I've been debating changing over to discoids me as some of my Ts are pretty big and even a fully grown dubia just..doesn't seem substantial enough to me. Plus if the wiggle out of my grip they crawl on my arms past the glove anyway. Any ideas on if changing over to discoids would be better for my apparent allergy? I can handle my other roaches (B.gigantues, G.portentosa,the Horseshoe Crab Roach whose binomial name evades me at the moment), just fine.
