Easy to Sex Non Climbing Mid Size Feeder Roaches!

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

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