    has anyone used buffao (cleaner) beetles in the dubia colonies? Im curious of how well they work and do they cause a problem with the dubias or escsping.

    They work pretty well. Never had an issue with them interfering with Dubia nor have I had an escape. They cohabitate quite well.

    What's the point of cleaners? Just curious as I am letting what was originally a tub of feeder dubias mature out, quite a ways from a large colony.

    Thank you! My main concern was they'd harmed the nyphs

    to help keep the tub clean. They eat waste and dead dubia

    No, just dead Dubia. I hear you can't keep them with Lateralis. They eat the egg sacks.
