natebugman Posted August 9, 2017 Share Posted August 9, 2017 For my work, I keep colonies of German cockroaches. I keep them in sterilite tubs with the foam gasket to keep them from escaping. The problem comes when I open the container to do maintenance or collect for studies. They come boiling out of the container at me. I use the Fluon liquid (Insect-a-slip) and that slows them down but some can still defeat it and it wears away fairly quickly. I've tried Fluon grease (Contain Bug Barrier) which barely slows them down, though it does seem to work well for American cockroaches and hissers. Does anyone else rear German cockroaches and have a better solution? Does anyone have ideas? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
