    Once they get breeding for you, you will be up to your eyebrows in cheap food.

    Dubia kick out some serious babies fast (once the females mature)

    One thing I learned the hard way, take that fruit out before it molds. I left a banana in for about 3 days once, and it got moldy, the mold spores nearly wiped out the colony.

    Make your dubia bin big!
    I have a 35 gallon sterilite bin, and I could use another one

    Yeah the plastic tubs are the way to go. Inexpensive and light weight to carry.
    You will be surprised how heavy the tubs get when your colony gets to rolling.
    But get the ones that are slick inside. Some of the rubbermaids have a texture to them and I could see the roaches being able to climb it.
    And don't get the clear ones as the roaches like darkness

    P1260012.jpg I found that the sterilite ones are real slick on the inside, smoother the better!
    It is amazing just how heavy an egg flat is that is full of dubias, and they are strong little buggers, I've noticed things moved around, do them party at night or what!:D

    I think so. I don't hear much out of them during the day but my wife is on the computer in the critter room in the evening and she swears that they are making all sorts of noise.
    But then again they seriously freak her out.

    What are the ingredients?
    I have never seen any sort of roach chow that you had to cook. In fact you don't even need to buy a commercial food. The darn things eat just about anything. My staple diet is bran and cheap catfood with fruits and veggies thrown in.
