DonaldJ Posted November 29, 2015 Share Posted November 29, 2015 I've read that, in the laboratory, carbon dioxide (CO2) is used to anesthetize roaches, and that too high of a concentration of CO2 will kill them. My B. Orientalis nymphs are in air-tight containers, with hundreds, maybe thousands, of 1mm holes drilled in the top and bottom. I figure that the bottom holes, besides draining any standing water, will allow the heavier-than-air CO2 to flow out of the container. Am I over-thinking this? I understand that air-tight containers are fine if you open them up every day or so for some fresh air. But I'd like to leave the containers undisturbed for up to a week (with plenty of food & water). Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
