Please Note: Limited Supply of Roaches
Blaptica dubia has become a popular feeder insect, particularly among tarantula, amphibian and reptile enthusiasts. Keeping or breeding the insect is made easier by their inability to jump or climb smooth surfaces, relatively slow movement, and rarity of flying.
As a feeder - Roaches make excellent feeders for your reptiles. They are high in protein and have a good shell to meat ratio. Animals will readily take them as they don’t give off any defensive odor. Because these roaches do climb they can be a little tricky to feed.

Turkestan cockroaches are a popular choice of species, and are readily available.
