2 day vacation, what to do?

Postby Dragonsbeard » Tue Feb 25, 2020 6:44 pm

Hello
I have a 5 month old(8 inch 25gram). I need to leave town and he would be alone for 2.5 days. Lights are on times and i have increased numbers of roaches on each feeding this week. I was going to give a good feeding just before leaving and also leave a big salad and water. Maybe let some roaches loose in viv. Thinking of putting together a traveling viv but not sure its necessary.

Thanks
- Chris

Hi Chris,

2.5 days is no big deal. Leave some salad and if you have an escape proof dish, leave some bugs in there. They are more than capable of surviving a few days without you feeding them.

I agree, for that short of a period it shouldn't be a big deal with a full belly and lights on timers. Might want to put newspaper down as substrate to make cleanup easier when you get back. Short trips like this get much easier as they get older too.
