Buffer Generation

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

How are you doing?

A friend of mine is wanting to start a colony of Periplaneta as a food source for her pet Monitor. I have been trapping roaches in my home, and am hoping to give them to her as a starter colony.

I am slightly concerned, however, about toxicity resistance in th roaches I have captured. If one were to breed the roaches, and then use the resulting generation's offspring as feeders, would that be enough of a buffer to ensure that there are no toxins in the fedder roaches' systems?

Thank you in advance,
