Easy to Sex Non Climbing Mid Size Feeder Roaches!

Dubia Roaches are a popular mid size feeder roach. Well known feeder roaches in Europe for many years, Dubia Roaches are finally starting to gain popularity here in the US as well. This species should become much more popular as people discover how easy they are to breed and deal with.

Also known as Guyana Orange Spotted Roaches, or Orange Spotted Roaches, but commonly referred to as dubia roaches, they are an all around great feeder species. Dubia are usually smaller than Discoid and Orange Headed Roaches, reaching an adult length of 1 ½ to two inches. Dubia have the softest exoskeleton of the three species. Dubia also have the great advantage of being extremely easy to sex as the adult males have full wings while the adult females have only tiny wing stubs. They are live bearers, easy keepers and very good breeders, better than Discoid Roaches. The dubia roaches are not nearly as shy and easily disturbed as either of the others. They are also slower moving.
