Description

Offering Blaberus atropos «Trinidad» (Trinidad Roach). The colour is dark brown with a skull-like pattern. There are yellow stripes on the underside of the abdomen. Nymphs are yellow with a black pattern.

Larvae prefer mainly to hide in the substrate: adults lead a more open lifestyle. When frightened, cockroaches give off an unpleasant smelling substance.

Ootheca contains on average about 30 eggs: larvae grow rapidly. With a lack of protein, cockroaches reproduce poorly.

To breed these cockroaches, you can use a terrarium, on the bottom of which you need to pour a layer of sawdust or coconut substrate 2 – 3 cm thick. The size of the terrarium for 7 cockroaches is 50 x 30 x 40 cm. Pieces of bark must be placed in the insectarium so that cockroaches can run over them. Cockroaches live in a dry insectarium, but it is better to have a humidity of 50 – 60%. The terrarium should be sprayed with water once every 2 days. Temperature 20 – 25 ° C. You can feed them with bananas, tangerines, cabbage, carrots, as well as dead insects.
