Counting question


Recommended Posts

So up until now, I have been hand counting my roaches. I was wondering how much a hundred dubia of various sizes would weigh. I need to deal with a large amount and can't possibly count them. I know it can't be exact, but that's not what I'm looking for, just an easier way to count roaches. Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe mark them with some kind of tags or tape or paint, making sure it's non-toxic.

the problem with charts is your always going to have in-between sizes your best bet is to count out 100-500 and average them if they are similar size

once you get into mixed groups it becomes very hard

we sell a ton of B.Dubia every Sunday I hand count 500 to get our weight for that weeks shipments
