Only Dubia?

Postby Malygos » Thu Nov 08, 2018 5:25 pm

Is it ok to cut out feeding with crickets all together, and feeding only dubia roaches to my 3 month old?( other than its greens that are available to it all the time)

I almost always feed my adult beardie dubia roaches. Crickets are a rarity.

From what I hear Dubias are the best as they dont give coccidia like crickets do---- I never give my dragon crickets - he really never liked them anyway and always preferred the dubias--

I order mine from and come in a few days

Yeah roaches are a great staple. It's still good to mix in things like black soldier fly larvae, silk worms, horn worms etc once in a while to add variety which is healthy. It's OK to keep roaches as a staple bug for regular feeding though.
