Dubia roach food??

Postby Hjballinger » Mon Jun 15, 2020 3:36 pm

So I have a decent sized roach colony and I keep having to buy more food. They go through A LOT if I keep food in there and I haven’t been feeding them enough because I run out too quickly. Would making my own food be cheaper? What would be good to crush up and put in it? If you have your own colony make your own food, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I haven’t ordered any more food yet, I was thinking about making my own roach chow. I’m not really sure how many is in the colony but I’d guess about 500

I put leftover salads from my dragon along with other kitchen scraps in for them and my colony does well. I only offer things that are safe for my dragon (no onion etc) but they will go through leftover bell peppers and squash readily. They like the occasional treat of a bread slice or cut up orange. They aren't really too picky and I don't find that I need to buy them specific/separate food.
