Hello all, I just caught a male-female pair of mature (looks like their mature anyway) Parcoblatta americana, and since I would like to breed this species, does anybody know about their general care? Housing? Feeding? Breeding? Looking forward to learning from the community!

 

Thanks in advance,

I have Parcoblatta divisa and i keep then in a sterolite gasket bin with eco earth substrate, a piece of cork bark, and lots of dead maple and pecan leaves. I would think this would work for your 2 P. americana also. Besides the leaves i occasionally put a small piece of carrot or orange in there for them to eat.

Thanks @Randomjoe, I have set up a cage similar to what you described, with oak leaves from where I found them. Unfortunately, the male died, and the female ate most of his abdomen. I am not sure if it was cannibalism or not. By the way, how often do they need water, based on what you know about P. divisa? 

Thanks for all your help!
