Woke up to roaches everywhere yay

Postby Karebearfreezepop0 » Mon May 20, 2019 3:51 am

Yeah I heard a loud bang and woke up rubbed my eyes and saw my ***** roach bin knocked over with roaches all over the floor scattering every which way, my cat running
Off in distance! Ugh so the kids woke up from it and my 11 year old helped me pick them up. Woke up wayyy to early and for this. So frustrating but I think I got most of them. I keep going and looking and don’t see any, I know we had a big albino one which I don’t see in there so there may still be a couple floating about but I tried to get them all rather than vacuuming the poor guys up.

Oh no! It stinks when that happens. Try luring them in with some treats. They love squash and bread and orange slices. They are also attracted to warm areas so putting up a ceramic heat emitter or a heat mat near the food might help attract the rest of them too.

Hey thanks for that I was already thinking of trying that lol

Hey do you know if this sounds right? My baby bearded dragon won’t eat, I’ve had him two weeks now and the first week he was eating good but the past 4-5 days he hasn’t eaten. I know that he has shed because I saw his head peeling, that was three days ago, how long can this last donuou know? I’m worried about him, he’s not eating.
Thanks!

I chimed in on your other thread, but I think the lack of appetite is just related to shedding. His appetite should return once his shed is done.

Lol yeah I saw that actually after or idk.
Just worry wort here I guess. I actually just brought him to the vet today, (petco where I got him from us paying yay), just to make sure and they said he looked good, gonna give me
Medicine to stimulate his appetite and some dewormer just in case and I hooked up my new t5 10.0 uvb lighting up today, so I’m hoping he will perk up! Thank you! Lol
