Native Roach - Central Ohio


Recommended Posts

I found these guys in some decaying wood along side isopods. They aren't big maybe around a half inch tops. I found them in Central Ohio, inside old logs

Im curious if anyone knows the ID on them?

Here is what I currently have them setup in! I grabbed some of the wood they were in, but I wish I had also grabbed some leaf litter. Should I feed them dog chow and let them munch on the wood or something ealse I need to do to get them to start reproducing? Only other roachs I have kept are B. dubia and Lateralis. These are just for fun probably not feeding.

I don't know the name but they eat decaying wood and leaves and I believe adults pass on digestive enzymes to newborn nymphs so they an eat wood. They enjoy dog and cat kibble and fruit like apples and bananas but rotting wood and leaves are a must. Substrate should be like how you found them outside.

These are what live by me. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/2360013

I believe you got the "digestive enzymes" part mistaken since that applies to genus Cryptocercus, not Parcoblatta. Also, wood and leaves are not a must for this genus.
