Dubia Roaches Too Large!!


New member
so, a week ago, I got some dubia roaches.
they man over the counter tossed in some fairly large ones, even though I pointed them to the size I want. I didn't know their size till I got home.

Well, they are starting to shed their skins and getting bigger! Breeding is out of the question. Even if I wanted to breed, my mom said hell no!

my issue is, how do i get rid of them? I kinda don't want to kill them horribly. would putting them in freezer full of water fill them? I so wish, I can trade them for smaller ones. Does anyone have any tips for me so I can kill them in the nicest way possible?

Take them back to the store, try to trade them to smaller ones, or just give them back so you don't have to kill them yourself
