Giant Hissing Cockroach & Food
Your order will consist of five juvenile Giant Hissing Cockroaches (Gromphadorhina species), and will be sent directly to you from another location. You will receive the cockroaches only, no food or habitat.
You will need to provide a tank with a secure lid to prevent escape. A line of vaseline around the top of the tank can help to keep the cockroaches in. Plenty of hiding places should be provided. Newspaper is the easiest substrate to use. The optimum temperature shoud be around 20 to 25 degrees Centegrade.
This species eats a variety of cereal, vegetables, fruit and a little dog food or you can buy the Cockroach Diet (sold separately). Water should be provided in tubs filled with foam or something similar to prevent the cockroaches from drowning. You must keep them in their habitat for their full cycle.
