Trusted Dubia Company??

Postby frederickajordan » Thu Feb 13, 2020 7:04 am

Hello everyone!

I have been ordering "200 medium" roaches from DBD Pet and every time so many roaches are dead and there are not even close to 200 roaches being in the shipment, maybe around 100. Not to mention many of them are on the small end. I'm done with it and I need recommendations on a trusted dubia company.

Thank you! :)

You could try https://Sellingdubia.com

I haven't bought from them personally, however they seem like a trustworthy source for dubia

I use dubiaroaches.com --- they are good and fast and the shipment is what I order --- roaches are alive when I get them -- just got some this morning - horn worms and butter worms --- all alive

Hate to hear that about DBD Pet. I use them for Supers, thru Amazon and only issue I had was shipping time. I used them because that's who my DIL has been using for a year but neither of us order Dubias. Have you contacted them? I sure would! That might happen ONCE but not again. I'd be po'd for sure! Too expensive for half to be dead or to be shorted on count.
Hope you find someone more dependable or DBD Pet steps up and does the right thing by you.

They did refund me for my last order due to half of them being dead which was nice but now I'm out of roaches and I got this order a week ago. But every order I have ever had is short and there are a handful of dead ones. Like you said I do understand once but not everytime :(
I just ordered 100 XL dubia and 12 medium hornworms from dubiaroaches.com like KarrieRee suggested and it was cheaper than "200 medium" from DBD. I am hoping this company is better

I've been ordering from Reptile Deli
No complaints at all--very well packed, insulated, & heated during cold weather.
I can't say I've counted (ordering 500-1000 at a time) but calculating from how many meals I get (which I do count out) I'd say I've gotten more like 600 & 1100. There's bound to be some variation in size, as I understand most places sift them. Some smaller ones have come through, but so have some larger ones.

I get mine from ABDragons and no dead ones yet that I have seen.

Let us know how it goes, if you are satisfied, etc. Hope it's a better experience for sure!

I use dubideli and dubiaroaches.com for my roaches, dubideli almost always has good roaches.

The issue I have with them is they are out of stock on the quantities I like ordering most of the time but when I do get them there I have always been greatly satisfied.

Hey, which quantities are you particularly interested in? Is Amazon an option?

I generally order 500 but those quantities are limited in some cases. Amazon is just a broker, I like to know where they come from.

You might want to check here https://www.amazon.com/stores/node/12692197011. I didn't try ordering there but that might an option to consider.

I generally get 1.5k 1000 adult size dubias and 500 mediums or smalls for my younger dragons and my geckos.
