PostSubject: Roaches or Crickets?   3/2/2012, 6:52 am

If I have to choose between roaches and crickets as feeders which is better?

The only species available nearby that I know of atm are Turkistan roaches.

Currently I have:
0.0.1 H. longimanus
1.0.0 Lou Han

but I'm planning to get more arachnids...

Roaches are better, if you can get them easily. I wouldn't breed them myself for just one scorpion.

+1

Imo, when your collection grows to a point where a moult is no longer big news to you..
You should have a roach colony going on already Smile

Whenever possible, offer a variety of feeder would be ideal.

My little recipe to share:

1) Roaches - 60% of diet
2) Crickets - 38% of diet
3) Meal-worms- 2% of diet

Mind sharing what's your recipe for a succesful roach colony? Mine died out recently.

Sure why not Smile
I'll probably work on a guide or something.
You're able to get more adult pairs locally in your area?

Yay! One more [how to] Very Happy

I think I'll be able to get them shipped from central europe.
Locally I can get just N. cinerea, but I refuse to breed those due to their climbing nature.

That is true. Having roaches that climbs is really a headache Smile
When are you planning to get them shipped to you?

Probably end on march/beginning of april. I want the minimum temps here to reach atleast 10 celsius before getting anything shipped.

roaches

breed them and sell your surplus, it is VERY EASY to keep a growing colony of roaches (dubia, lats, lobster, etc.) in our country. A huge tub, egg crates, regular misting and high protein dogfood + vegetable/ fruit scraps will keep them happy and propagating.

plus crickets smell
