Kulture Posted February 14, 2019 Share Posted February 14, 2019 Hi all! i breed several types of Blaberidae roaches as feeders (dubia, discoids, orange heads, and pantanal). I also have an indoor garden. I have have had an increase in insect pests in my garden, particularly whiteflies and scale bugs, and dont typically use chemical pesticides. i have been interested in trying different biocontrol organisms to deal with the pests, but am worried they might attack the roach colonies as well! I have been considering fungi like beauveria or metarhizium, or predatory mites such as amblyseius. does anyone have any experience of info using these, could i use them in my garden without risk to the roaches, or will these wipe out my roach colonies?? any info is appreciated, thanks!
