hey everyone i got about 100 discoids today. im very excited to start a colony so i will be able to feed from it by the time i bring my bd home. i just have a couple questions about taking care of these guys. first off, i need to know the most efficient way to supply heat to them. right now ive got a human heating pad under their bin that is doing an ok job at keeping them warm, but problem is that its got a 2 hour auto off feature for safety. i cant always be around to turn this thing back on, ya know? whats my best option for supplying heat? ive heard of lots of people fastening a heating pad to a picture frame so the pad doesnt come into direct contact with the rubber bin. is this a good idea? i really dont want to use a che and i cant find a human heating pad that doesnt have the auto off feature. should i invest in a uth and thermostat for the roaches as my alternative? also i made a home made blend of roach chow, i want to know what you think of it. i used (roughly, no real measurements were used) 2 parts flukers cricket diet to 2 parts kitten food to 1 part cherios. they are already all over the mixture and seem to like it, but is this sufficient as far as nutrition? ive also got a couple apple slices and water pillows for moisture. i appreciate your input!
