    So guys i just got a dubia breeding kit from LLLReptile and had a question about the light. Is it true Dubia's aren't bothered by infrared light? I'm using one currently and when I peek in one of the air holes I never see any of them eating lol. Also, feedback on my setup?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure on the light to be honest.
    If you put a piece of crate over the food then they can reach it if the light bothers them.

    It's a red light, I heard they couldn't see red light. Is that ok?

    I'm not sure if the light will affect them. But if you think it is then cover the eating area with a piece off egg crate.

    I always just used heat pads for mine but I had about a 7 inch circle cut in the top for ventilation so there was light in the bin.
    Try switching off the heat lamp for a few minutes and see if they come out.

    Mine aren't lit, they are on a heat pad. I also noticed that they eat faster if their food is covered, the likely feel more secure.

    Trying this now, how long should I wait?

    How would you cover it? Just put part of an egg crate over it?

    That's what I do, the dishes are under a piece of cardboard.

    I do not use a light for my dubias only a plastic container with a heat pad below.
