With it being close to halloween I'm going to have some pumpkin chunks and guts laying around.. Any reason I shouldn't offer them to my discoid colony?
Thanks for the replie I'm going to give it a shot with just a couple if they seem to enjoy it and live through the night (Lol) I will feed some to the rest of the colony.I have fed squash to some of my roaches, but not exactly pumpkins. Squashes tend to get moldy very quick if they are in an enclosed environment, so make sure you give enough that your colony can finish it off. I heard some people say they fed their roaches some leftover pumpkins from Halloween, so I don't see why they shouldn't be able to eat them too. Pumpkins also contain lots of Vitamin A & C and a fair amount of potassium (which is probably why mold likes it so much), with many more "superfood" nutrients that can be beneficial to more than just roaches.
