Eublaberus posticus


Recommended Posts

Had a question on Eublaberus posticus. Is their substrate suppose to be pretty soggy? or just misting? I read they need a lot of moisture. and i guess i can put some white isopods in with these guys?

These guys tend to produce thier own moisture and humidity. I keep them on no substrate eggcartons and with an open lid high enough they cant get out of course. The open lid is fine since its in a closet where there are no air vents. If you keep them in normal rooms a lid to hold in humidity is ideal. I give them pretty wet food watermelon and cantalope rinds, apples, oranges. The wet food translates to wet frass that holds humidity really well. In fact I frequently replace eggcarton because it so naturally damp. You never want soggy though thats a recipe for flys and anarobic conditions which is really unplesent. Also the isopods might work but they will most likely be eaten. They seem to ignore beetles and thier larvae.

Well if the isopods get eaten then thats just a little snack for them right? lol

Eublaberus is semi-predatory, but it seems like isopods would be left alone because the roaches won't be able to get through their shells!

I picked up a starter colony of Eublaberus posticus at an expo over the weekend. I guess we'll see how they do for me!
