To set up your kit you will fist need connect the heat light and heat mat and add the climbing platform. The climbing feature is in 2 bits for ease of access. you can set up your vivarium how you would like it with egg crates ect or even add logs rocks ect for decoration.
In the wild cockroaches are mainly scavengers eating fallen leaves animal and plant waste seeds nuts ect, in captivity they are fed oats fruit and vegetables.
When breeding dubia roaches to feed to your pets it is important to give them a nutritious diet rich in protein and calcium so they can grow and breed as fast as possible. I would recommend a base of dry dog food supplemented with watercress as its 13% calcium by weight as well as feeding dry milk and or dry egg powder, also feed moisture rich fruit and Vegetables such as grapes cucumbers ect. This diet will supply your roaches all the nutrition they need to be healthy.
Breeding Dubia cockroaches is easy and safe with very little smell, they are harmless and carry no disease.
The most important part of breeding the roaches is making sure the temperature does not drop below 20°c or so at night or they won’t breed very well, you can set the included timer to turn the heat lamp on in the evening and overnight to keep them warm.
As long as the temperature and diet is ok they will breed very fast with each female giving birth to around 40 roaches every month or so!
