Dubia roaches do not seem to be enjoying new dog/cat food

I started trying out blue buffalo finicky feast cat food and blu buffalo lamb and brown rice dog food. I ground it up almost into a powder. They don't seem to be loving the new food. Anyone have suggestions on dog/cat food brand/flavors that dubia seem to prefer and enjoy more?

Instead of changing brands of food, you might try adding something like oatmeal or baby oatmeal cereal to the mix. I have also added bee pollen and spirulina(just open capsules and dump on food). Sometimes it just takes one new ingredient to stimulate their appetites.

In my experience, regardless of what cat or dog hand-me-down food you receive... Grind it up with fish food. Like flakes or pellets.

I raise my dubias to feed my dovii. I buy giant containers of flake food (at the cheapest place possible). Always try to get 40% protein flake food.

When I grind up the cat or dog food, I do it with the flake food (or sometimes cheap pellet food). It gives it that rich smell.

You don't need a lot. But with it mixed in, they can't ignore it.

I usually add it last, across the top of the cat food in my grinder container before I grind it. Just to the point where I can or can't barely see the cat food.

It doesn't even need to be a quart fish food to cat food. Just a small amount will mix in well.

I always have it available, and they will devour it if there's no fruit in the tank.

To answer your specific question, I use meow mix atm. But it was really really cheap when I bought it. Like on sale or something.

I'll change brands if I have to, but it'll likely always have fish food in it.
