Lobster Roaches as Feeders

Lobster roaches are an exceptional candidate for raising your own feeders. They are very easy to breed and require very little time or attention. Their soft bodies make them almost irresistible as a feeder insect. One can eliminate the need for buying crickets as feeders, and the money saved from that more that pays for the limited time investment the roaches will require.

On first glance Lobster roaches closely resemble house cockroaches. (Which are generally either American (Periplaneta americana) or German (Blattella germanica)cockroaches). The similarity, however, is only superficial and these insects are quite distinct from the pest species. Lobster roaches are a tropical species of cockroach which will not infest your house and would prefer to live outdoors in bark or leaf mulch.
