charzard Posted March 1, 2017 Share Posted March 1, 2017 So, my roaches arrived Friday and so far I've tried giving them bananas, lettuce, carrots, cat and dog food but I honestly can't figure out if they are eating any of it. They don't seem to go near it really and I can't notice if any bites are being taken out of any of it. Also..one of them seems disoriented. I found it on its back this morning with its legs wiggling around. If I pick it up it will walk but slowly in circles basically. I think it is going to die, but I'm unsure of why.. I have them in a plastic container and it seemed they were getting cold as they were migrating to the top and I could feel them cold to the touch. I then grabbed a heating blanket (as I'm not really sure how to heat a plastic enclosure best), wrapped it around and put it on low. Since then their enclosure has been around 80° F and 80% humidity. What can I do to better suit them in their enclosure? What's a good way to heat a plastic enclosure without melting/fire hazard? This is my first colony of g. portentosa nymphs and any tips and pointers in the right direction would be helpful. Thank you. -Charlie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
