    The roaches in every way are superior to crickets, nutrrition, care, no noise or smell. The only downfall might be if they dont like them but that can be worked around also.

    Im trying supers and mealies with vitamin and gutloading to the (safest) max. Im absolutely still done with crickets, and im being lazy in the respect of starting a native roach coloney.
    Please, please tell me what they looked like,
    Did they seem afraid of you?
    They were kids that I once knew..

    I think I might have found a solution to people in Florida. The Discoid roach is nearly identical to the Dubia, but is legal in Florida. Supposedly it is because they are native there (Don't live in Florida so didn't look into it too closely).

    I kinda prefer the roaches....when I was little I had caught this cricket....And I was talking and....it jumped into my mouth =X

    With roaches that can't happen...nor will I have one jump into my hair...or my pants...

    Hmm, intresting roach. Now i just need to get some. One issue i see is that it would really suck if they decide this roach is no longer introduced and is now invasive. It was recently switched to introduced so its a hot topic for florida rep and invert keepers from what i read. If i can get my hands on some ill post.

    When I got my first gecko a year ago, I swore I would never get roaches. Now, after seeing all (cough) ten of my leos go after them, I will forever have them available.

    Dubia roaches do not stink, to not 'chirp', do not climb, give live birth, and the babies eat the frass of the adults. A perfect feeder IMO.

    Having only one leo, how fast do these roaches breed? I don't want to be overrun with them.

    And I know someone is going to say I can solve that problem by getting more leos..ha-ha.
