Giant Cave Roaches


Recommended Posts

I've had my colony of giant cave roaches for about two years now. I've had them out in my garage last summer and this summer. For some reason I did not loose too many last summer. This summer I've lost a lot of adults , esp freshly molted ones. I'm wondering if it's due to too much heat. Outdoors it got up to about 104 F degrees , which Is probably about 95 F degrees in the garage. Perhaps this is too hot ? Do these or perhaps all Blaberus species , ie. pepper roaches , discoides , giant caves ... prefer lower temps ( 80 - 90 F ) ?
