Dubia!

Well I just want to say some things about my dubia colony!

My setup is 2 egg flats stacked horizontally, I drop a couple pieces of fruits and veggies in there enclosure I have some oatmeal laying there too.

I bought around 25 females and 50 males but I thinned the males out to around 20 I believe.

How long do I wait to start feeding them to my sav?
When will I know that I have lots?

Re: Dubia!

The box will be swarming with bugs, when you see tons of little baby roaches running around in there you will know it's heading in the right direction.

Re: Dubia!

I'm with you on that one Norm. I can't wait to get a lizard latter on so that I can have a colony. It's the only way my hubby will let me get them.

Re: Dubia!

Get colonies! You can breed them and sell them to reptile keepers.

Brady, I agree with Wayne.
