Any good setup for turkistan roaches? Do they need a lot of space to breed? Any drawbacks to them?
For breeding, you'll want a substrate, it makes it easier to keep the cage at the humidity levels that the ootheca need to hatch.Any good setup for turkistan roaches? Do they need a lot of space to breed? Any drawbacks to them?
This species is already present in AZ, he could probably go catch some to start a colony if he wants, lol! They generally stay outside though, like Periplaneta, so they aren't that big of a concern, unlike the Blattella or Supella that love breeding in houses.The biggest drawback is if they get loose in your home. Prolific breeders that are actually displacing the oriental roach in some areas.
No, they won't eat each other, unless they are underfed that is, and they'd only go after each other when they molt.Do the baby turkish roaches get eaten by the bigger ones? Also could I just have a dish of cocofiber in the tank for humidity and breeding purposes? Would I be able to culture sow bugs and springtails with them? Could banana roaches work for the setup too if I had cocofiber cover the whole floor?
