Hi all, not sure if this has been posted yet, apologies if it has. Curious if anyone has on knowledge on whats going on with Roachcrossing at the moment. I know he's been inactive for quite some time, I emailed him about ordering some species roughly 6 months ago but never heard back, now I notice the roachcrossing website appears to be down entirely! Anyone have any idea if it will ever be back up/what the situation is?

There's a big discussion going about this on FB... Even if Kyle renews the website, he is essentially done for in Blatticulture, his once immaculate reputation is now in tatters, he has not been fit to run a business, or even care for his animals adequately in the past few years. He's neglected many of his species to death, including some colonies that were the last of their kind in the US. Sad, but true. The quality of animals he's been sending out as of late has gotten worse and worse as well.

I for one am done with hoping for a "glorious return" from Roachcrossing, those days are good and gone I'm afraid. Time to move on.

I don't think reputation is a big factor in internet sales. I've known vendors with crazy reputations who continue many years later but still get unusual things (I still break down and place an order now and then). It mostly has to do with rare items and advertising sales. I know Kyle seemed to do an amazing amount of sales and I have no idea why he has shut down so often and for such long stretches. I imagine whatever he's done to drum up great sales can be repeated by him, but it does seem he disappears for longer and longer periods. Keep in mind there may be much that you know that is entirely lost on me, I haven't heard from him in years. Also, if there are any positive or negative reports they should go in the seller feedback only and reference a specific, factual transaction.

If all the people who got scammed or ripped off by Kyle left reviews on him here, you'd realize how poor a vendor he's actually been these past few years... He'll make a few good sales every now and then, which has been enough to keep him afloat, but he's been essentially blacklisted from most of the roach communities ATM...
