    Default Roach Identification

    I bought these, being told they were death heads. Their wings aren't black so I assume they are not. From looking at blaberous I'm thinking that all these Blaberus look enough alike that I can't tell what it is.





    I also got a lot of hissers today. Yay! Two large species and the turkish roaches.

    I should clear that up. I was looking at blaberous.com.

    Blaberous is a family name, there are multiple species. I want to know which of the actual species I have. What species did you have?

    That's what I thought they were until I saw all the photos of the other blaberous species. They all look similar to me. Was hoping they were the more expensive kind but I guess it doesn't really matter. How much do discoids normally go for?

    To me they look like the Discoids.

    Thanks. The pic of my holding one sealed the id for me. Now I have to figure out how to sex them and hope that I got mostly females. Need a breeding colony. Anyone keep discoids?

    I also had some white fuzzy bugs come out with the hissers I picked up today. I'll try getting a photo. Anyone know what they could be? Thanks

    I don't but I know someone who does if you want or need any help, just PM me for his email address

    Oh and the white bugs maybe mites, but they are species specific and won't harm you other animals.
