    Default Extra adult dubia's?

    So I am going to be purchasing a small dubai colony and get rid of the jumpy crickets! We have 3 cresties on the way, totaling 7 hungry mouths to feed! I have been doing research on Dubais, and was wondering what others do with their larger adult dubai's that are too big to feed? I was thinking you just blend them up and add them to CGD, but I can't seem to find any answers on if that works well or not.

    Also if you have any helpful links or advice, please share!

    Attaching pictures of incoming cresties, 2 probable females and 1 female.

    I've seen people do that, I don't really need more than one colony though!

    I'd rather not try to sell them off either, rather just maintain one colony if possible. Seems like there are plenty of colonies already for sale anyways!

    At this point when they get that big I'm just like, you made it! They made it through all the feeding days! So I just let them hang out and live their golden years. I know it's not the best option for the long run to keep a healthy colony, but that's where I'm at until my leachies are big enough to eat adults, haha. I think I've seen plenty of people grind them up, but I don't know if it will make the diet spoil faster than usual, it wouldn't be a problem if your guys are good eaters though!

    I say leave them be. They should continue to make babies for you. At least for a little while. Our experience, dubia roaches don't tend to breed so fast and out of control that they are not manageable. If you need to blend up, sell off the occasional adults, so be it, but they shouldn't be a huge problem.

    Awesome, thanks everyone!! I guess if you keep feeding the babies off then I shouldn't have problems maintaining one colony before they grow up.
