Breeding Problems, Slow Production


Recommended Posts

I think i might have mad a mistake when i initially got my roaches. My male to female population was out of control, in my opinion. I set the population at as close to 1 to 4 as i could. In doing that i may have taken to many of the breeding males out. Question? If they have wings are they of age to reproduce? I have a lot of roaches and they are not putting out as many babies as id hoped! I have 48 Bearded Dragon babies im trying to feed and cant produce enough babies.... I havnt counted individually but im guesssing ive got 20,000 at tleast. I have 2 30 gal totes full! Ive seen i know hundreds of females in each tote. I was figuring with that many females i should have thousands a month! Any help would be appreciated.

I have since finished a room out for my Dragon breeding bins and have put my roaches in the room. I now have the temps between 80-90 all the time. The only smell i have now is probably just the amount of roaches i have. Hoping that production pics up! The cool side is mid Seveties, but the warm side stays between 80-90. Thanks for all the input guys. Im still new at this, but i want my colonies to strive! Planning on selling them after i raise up and sell my Dragons,of which i have sold 23. Only 25 more to go!

It depends on what species of roach it is
