Mmfh Posted February 20, 2016 Share Posted February 20, 2016 Hi, I'm from central pa and I currently own about 50 to 75 Blaptica dubia. Originally I obtained my roaches to feed to my tarantulas. I had one large adult female left and a bunch of very full T's so she became a semi pet lol. I bought about 15 more nymphs, didn't seem right to keep her alone and she gave birth to about 15 babies. My colony has been running for about 2.5 years. The more I watched them the more fascinated I became and the more I realized they have interesting behaviors. I'm now considering some different types of roaches to keep as pets. My hesitation comes from the fact that although my population is increasing, I really am not getting the amount of live offspring I should be (with them being feeders I was never concerned by this because I don't have enough T's to eat a highly successful colony) however, if I get some as pets I feel I would not be able to successfully keep them. I was following all the roach threads over on arachnoboards and thought it would be nice to join the community here. Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
