    @Aimless, I made sure to wash the collards thoroughly before I fed it to them. I try not to use anything on my plants that I would not want to eat, watched too many GMO documentaries on Netflix and now I'm paranoid about all food I eat.

    Now that it is getting colder outside, I thought about moving my roaches into the bathroom. That's the warmest place in my house, since its not very big, and it gets a decent amount of humidity. What are others thoughts? I'm not breeding them, I just don't want the temps in my house to start killing my roaches.

    The drawer under my bed that I keep mine in can dip into the lower 60s during the night, maybe even lower, and they've been fine. What temperatures are you seeing in your house?

    As-long as breeding isn't your aim they will survive the lower temps just fine because as we all know pretty much every roach species are just that - survivors.

    You may notice a decreased appetite (they will gut-load less effectively) however as they get colder and of course no breeding,

    I have my house thermostat set on 68. So it goes from 68-70 depending on how long the heat stays on for.

    I put a baby carrot in with them when I dumped out poop and gave them fresh food, they went to that like flies on poo. I have noticed since it's gotten colder, they stay on the egg crate and don't eat as much.

    As a gutloading tip, I've seen someone mention in a thread once to set aside a batch 24-48 hrs prior to feeding them off in a very warm area and feed them all of that good stuff during that time for the best results.

    Sweet. I moved them to the bathroom for now. I plan on feeding him roaches Tuesday night so that should warm them up enough to get nice and full. I'm going out of town From Wednesday-Sunday so he's going to be living off worms until I get back home.

    Enjoy your trip! Even if he ran out of food he'll be fine thanks to the fat reserves they store in their tails. That's one of the nice things about these guys, you don't have to worry too much about finding anyone to feed them while you're gone!

    Exactly! I have to worry about my fat behind guinea pig running out of food and water more than him. I have a plan for her this time as well
