Hi Everyone,

I've been looking for a roach forum for a couple of weeks since starting a colony of Dubia. I've bred crickets; which has led me to a vast hatred for the miserable vermin. I also am breeding mealworms currently and plan on getting into hissers most likely soon.

I've owned and bred Leopard Geckos for 4 years and have ventured into Gargoyles and Crested recently.

I've found that the Dubia make the ultimate choice when breeding geckos. I've used crix and mealies for a long time and found after introducing Dubias; not a single one refused.

I'm also fascinated by the little guys and even feel bad when I have to serve them as prey. I haven't been taking a lot out of my colony yet because I want them to get established.

I can't wait to learn more and meet you all!

Aren't Dubia apart of the Blaberus Species? Blaptica Dubia??

No, they aren't in the same genus. They are in the subfamily Blaberinae with Eublaberus, Hormetica , Archimandrita and a number of other related genera.

Some commonly kept Blaberus species are:

Blaberus giganteus

Blaberus colloseus

Blaberus craniffer

Blaberus discoidalis
