    I just got my dubia colony up and running and the heating pad (zoomed?) will not stick to the greyishblue steralite tub.

    I don’t want to just tape it on and end up with a gooey mess.

    What works for your set up?

    Not much of a colony, but I do have a dozen or so. Adults are in the left enclosure, babies are in the right enclosure. I don’t think the heating pad is required to keep the colony going.

    Dubia will do fine in a range of about 75 to 90, higher resulting in faster growth/breeding rates.

    During the warmer months I do not even bother with a heating mat for them, cooler months I have made a styrofoam box that I place both of my colonies intoit with the heating pad between them on a small metal rack. It there provides the heat to one side of each enclourse while I styrofoam insulates it and keeps it all warmer.

    Great idea! I think I'll try that set-up! Thanks for the info.

    I guess I'll hot glue it.
