Dubai roaches farm harvest estimate.

Simple question I hope.
If I was to start a farm of dubia roaches using five males and 20 females adults how long would I have to wait before I can start harvesting baby Dubai's? And how many could expect after 1 month?

The colony has to get established before you start feeding out of it. This generally takes about three months. Hope this helps.

I started with a similar amount of adult, a few less females. It wasn't until 4-6 months that the colony seemed to be booming. With enough roaches to take and enough to start the next generation

The more you start with, the sooner you'll be able to feed out of them.

The key is having several generations (5 to 6) in the colony before taking from it.
