American roaches are the kings of food, they eat just about anything, so feeding is no problem. If you have a secure tank, that eliminates infestation.

But what setup and substrate are you supposed to use for them?

paper towel rolls and egg crates arent so good because they like damp places, and the paper would just rot and mold quickly and be a big hassle.

Dear Roachman:

Could the same care directives apply to GERMAN cockroaches?
Baby "Germans" are very nearly too small to see.
They are also escape artists.
How CAN you clean a cage where they are...?

Enquiringly yours,

Louise Esther Rothstein.
