Beginner in pet roaches


Recommended Posts

Heating cable is good to heat many cages as you can lay it out across a desk/shelf and use it to heat the cages. Roaches can be kept in a variety of cages but food storage ones work the best along with gasket boxes.

Plastic containers of various sizes seem to be the best for housing roaches, easy to add the amount of ventilation you want, and they are fairly cheap. Any of the hissers would make great beginner species, (except for Elliptorhina davidi), and many of them are decent for handling too. I use this to heat my cages, if you use it right you can heat multiple cages with it. :)

I personally would put the cable on the side so that the roaches can choose how warm they want to be. Putting the cable below means that if they're trying to escape the heat, they'll overheat and potentially die because their instinct is to go lower when they get too hot.
