Recommended Posts

Hi, I'd like to introduce myself, Im from Czech republic, long time insect enthusiast, but first time going for roaches. I have already bit limited space, so right now can afford one or two species and would like to pick as much attractive as possible. I can provide them with good conditions as Im financialy set well, Id be glad if You could guys name few of Your own favorites, for me to have an idea and wat makes them outstanding. Im also looking for some good literature on roaches, if possible enthomological, not the basic breeding tips that I can find elsewhere or ask a reputable breeder. Thank You very muchband wish You all nice weekend.

1. Hi, nice to meet you!

2. Personally I would recommend a True Blaberus craniifer or some type of hisser. I personally am a fan of big roaches, as it's super cool to watch them and be able to hold them if you desire. A true Blaberus craniifer has black wings and a prontum with a skull-shaped marking. For some reason they are often confused with other Blaberus sp. Hissers are also cool, but always try to go non-hybrid, as they are much better and worth the effort.

3. The best book is "For the love of cockroaches". It's super helpful.

 

I hope I could help! :)

Yes, thank you for welcoming, it seems not too much populated here or am I wrong? At the end I ordered 3 species Gyna centurio, Panesthia augustipennis cognata and hissing one, forgotten the Sp. name now. Thank you once again, hope to find people with same passion here, book ordered:-)
