    TOO much ventilation in Dubia bin?

    If the water cyrstals in the dish look dry, add water to them. They are re-usable you know... Years ago I worried about humidity, I dont any more. I keep the tops off on all my colonies and only worry about the food, water and the temp (stays between 80-85)

    Funky Egg Sac? *Pics*

    This is strictly my opinion. I have seen this with some of my females. I believe its the sack that actually holds the "egg sack" inside the females. My theory is they either push it out after giving birth, dropping an infertile sack or near death. I have looked into it before and never found...

    Gnats and other Dubia problems.

    I would suggest lowering your temps between 85-90. We clean tubs about once a month when we pull the babies out. I freeze all the eggflats to kill off any gnat eggs that have been laid inside them. I also dont recommend keeping a top on them. (it sounds like you do) Try this if its possible...

    What other Roaches do you breed?

    I would suggest lateralis as a secondary roach. I have seen males fly and the babies seem to be able to climb a bit.

    Where do you buy your dubias?

    When I first got into breeding many moons ago I thought it was very important to have a very diverse collection from many different breeders. I ordered roaches from at least 10 different individuals, including the large breeders. I never had a problem with introducing the roaches to each other...
