    So I just took the time to count out my males and females. My ratio is 54 females to 27 males. I originally got 30/30 males/females when I originally ordered about 3 or 4 months ago. Haha it took some wine drinkin and a a glove to grab and count everyone.
    Is this a good ratio?

    All you need is one male to 3 females.

    With a smaller colony I don't see much of an issue with leaving it around 1 male to 2-3 females. The main reason for getting rid of extra males in a larger colony is wing biting and the fact that they eat your food. If you really wanted to, you could drop the males to 20 but it won't really change anything. I would personally just leave it alone for now.

    I have never counted my Dubia, I just feed out mostly males when I go to feed out. As long as I leave a couple males, they don't seem to have a problem keeping the population up.
