Hi what temperatures can Dubias mate? And how long will it take to get babies??

Also, is it true if I handle Dubia a lot
I can get allergies?? And is that if I hold them on my hand? And what kind of allergies?!

Hi - yes, some people develop a sensitivity to them. Some sites recommend thin rubber gloves and a painters mask to help avoid that.
Here's some good information to start with, and you csn Google "dubia roach colony care" for more. ... care-sheet
Gestation for discoids is sbout 2 months, so dubia may be similar, and then you'd need time for the babies to grow. :0)
