    Default Dubia roach colony

    So I started a dubia roach colony with about 100 medium cockroaches (I would have got large but they were out of stock) and a lot of them have shed multiple times and now have wings or stubs (females) and seem to be doing really well. I have them on a thin layer of orchid bark and have egg boxes stacked sideways. I have a pringles lid (shallow enough for easy access) of bug gel and a other pringles lid with big grub and I also give them apple core, cabbage, kale and carrots etc. But I have just found a dubia that looks perfectly healthy but it has a hole in its back!! It is obviously dead now but it looks like something has taken a munch out of it? Is this the other dubias or could it be something else? Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks 🙂

    Dubias will fight and the only way to really fix that is to make you have a good ratio of males to females. Something like 1/3 should work.
