I have heard that Dubias are the best Roach for Scorps and some have told me Lats are the best, so I wanted to hear from other scorp keepers. I want to start breeding them to be independent from trips to the pet store and to save money.
Like heck they don't.B. lateralis do not climb glass or smooth surfaces. Lateralis is by far my favourite feeders, but their speed makes the feeding work less effective. It takes more time picking an appropriately sized B. lateralis than i.e. B. dubia. For people with large collections, this factor is quite significant.
Oh, I've had both types of escapes, I won't pretend I haven't.I keep mine in open containers (without lids), and I never have any escapes.
If you have escapes even though you use a smooth plastic container with a lid AND vaseline, how on earth are they able to escape from that? It sounds like you've been sloppy with the routines while feeding, and that some specimens may have escaped in that process. If not, your B. lateralis must have some sort of teleportation ability
