    Lobster Roaches

    I will trade a breeding colony of lobster roaches, aprox. 20 roaches.

    I would like to get a breading pair of Tokay geckos. I'm willing to deal to make up the any differences.

    If no Tokays are available, I'll take almost anything.

    Sorry Ozzy, No deals.

    Just wanted to say I wanted to breed Lobster Roaches for my Leopard Geckos. The word roaches left me mouth and the wife said no. I should have said lobster beetles. Then maybe I could have gotten away with it.

    Steve, I know it probably won't make a difference but lobster roaches are way cleaner than crickets, they have no smell at all. They don't make any noise. They are way less easier to keep and breed than crickets. They are better for your reptiles than crickets.

    Let's pretend that you leave the top off their tank and they all escape. They will not infest your house they way german or other pest roaches do. They are very tropical and need really high heat. They would all die off if they were living in your house.

    Once you go lobster roaches, you'll never go back to crickets.

    Steve, just keep at your wife. I finally broke mine to the idea. LOL. She still hates that they are in the house but as Ozzy said, they do not smell and they are real easy to take care of. None of the die off of crix either. Plus, our waxies LOVE them. They practically maul each other when they see me coming with the forceps and deli cup. LOL

    I went with B. latteralis. Needed something smaller than the lobsters. Plus, I was not big on a climber...

    Ozzy, can't help you on the Tokay front. Try a local reptile expo though, sure you can find some there for dirt cheap. Might try dropping The Griffin a line too, he knows some weird freak woman who has tamed Tokays that she adopts out...

    It's easy to get your wife to agree to the roaches if you use the method I used. I ordered them and when they arrived I opened them and said look. She said what's that and I said roaches.

    No need to tell you what happened for the next few days, but now I have plenty of roaches.
