How do you keep flying roaches such as Panchlora nivea (AWESOME looking roach tho bad they fly) in a container? would you get a Pop up net type deal that you might use for Mantids?
Green banana roaches--They will fly away if they get a chance. If you have the wrong container, they will rush up the sides and all fly out like a swarm? of moths when you open it, LOL. I had good luck using a container that slopes inward at the top- one of those big plastic pretzel jars from costco. Put vaseline on the sloped part only. They will run up the side when you open the jar, but won't fly at the top because the sloped part is above their heads and they can't run over the vaseline.yea but when I open the terrium to feed them they could fly away, Im assuming.
