What types of roaches can you use as feeders? And where can I get them? The usual places I've looked don't sell them.

Blaptica dubia, shelfordella lateralis, those are good, many people get allergic to dubia tho, me included, can't almost breath, but my pets love them so just gotta carry on.

I'll keep that in mind. Not for my sake, I've never become allergic to anything in my life (though there's a first time for everything), but my mum, seems to be allergic to just about everything.

Now the issue of buying them in the UK... Seem to be a little illusive to say the least.

EDIT: BugzUK have some. Eggselent.

They are easy to buy mate. Get your arse off to the show in darlington on Sunday, there will be LOADS there.
Get yourself a decent sized starter colony and look after them for 4 months like pets then you'll never need crix again.
Graham at Metamorphosis.GB sells loads of species, Google "Roach Shop" as well, literally hundreds of stockists in UK for bulk buying them.

This place seems pretty good, they do a small tester pack to see if you get on ok with them or just go all out and start the colony.

I done what Pelo has said and started a colony with a good amount and have just left them to build up. Left them for 6 months now and going to start feeding off them soon, roach bin is looking pretty full up Laughing

Sounds like a plan. Can't wait to get rid of the crickets and locusts forever. Sick of them dying after a day.

And do you mean the IHS show? That's my destination.

That's the one mate.
If you see a dashingly handsome bloke with a scorpion tattoo on his head, come say "Hi".

Haha, dashingly handsome ey? I'm sure you'll stick out like a sore thumb then matey.

Likewise, if you see a lad with a silly beard, a woolly hat and shorts restraining a small child, that be me.

use male or females are feeders? pet shop told me females bc male have shorter life span. i think use males bc one can impregnate many, while a female will be busy with gestation.
