    Elizabeth:
    I hadnīt seen this post, sorry for the late reply.... they canīt climb either plastic or glass, nor do they fly or jump, in many aspects I find them similar to B. dubia, however the main differences I find between them are: * Blaberus grow a bit larger,
    * Blaberus ARE faster
    * Blaberus are more voracious (they eat like crazy!!! I have about 200 right now, and I can LITERALLY SEE them eat the orange slices I put in there in a few minutes, I give the a banana, at night and I pick up the peel completely clean the next morning).
    * And the most beneficial difference, IMHO is that they reproduce and grow so much faster than dubias, I am not planning on getting rid of my dubia colony, I like to have as many different feeders as I can..., but IF I HAD to choose amongs them I believe I would stick to Blaberus, mostly because of the fast they grow and reproduce... totally recommend them.
    Saskia!

    Thanks for your feedback here /\, Saskia.

    Different feeders are very good!

    Thanks to everyone for contributing to this post. It is very helpful. I am going to start a colony of lateralis and this info is great. I had one years ago, but now I have gargoyle geckos and I think it will help them to have a good feeder insect.

    Dubia roaches can breed at 78 degrees or lower but the breeding will not be as much as when you give them the additional heat. Most people are trying to breed thousands for their reptiles, but if you only have a few reptiles , you can get by without an additional heat source. Just keep that in mind.
