I am starting a colony of these beauties. Can anybody give me detailed information on their care? Temperature, substrate, preferred food, humidity, etc.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Just keep them like all the other roaches you have. These guys are one of the best climbers and can scale vaseline without even trying, so it's good to use a very very fine mesh on the lid of the container.

I've read that they spend a lot of time burrowing, but my colony is also very new, so I cannot comment from personal experience. Worth looking into though, as I have mine on no substrate at present.

Hope you enjoy 'em! ;)
