I have 4 T's 1"-3" and was interested in feeding them roaches. I was thinking B. dubia, but before I ordered, will the the smaller T's eat them ok? Do I need to pre kill them?

Also how long do B. dubia live if proper care is taken with them?

Any help would be great!

With my smaller Ts I take baby male dubia and just lightly pinch the head, this makes it so the T can take it on easier much less of a struggle, and so the roach keeps moving and twitching some till its noticed by the T.

If you get a mixed lot of dubia Id say with proper care you are looking at 6-10 months easy. I got some from david grimm back in what sepetember now, and I have only had 6 or so adults die, and have had over 1000 babies produced. granted because of how many slings I have there are only about 400 babies right now. but my colony is up and running very well.
