ROACH BREEDING CONDO
This is our exclusive roach breeding condo, proven and shop tested to provide a simple and space saving, self reliant breeding environment for many species of roaches. Tested here on dubia for colonizing Adult breeders.
We had excellent results with producing a excellent number of baby nymphs out of a Ratio of 500 Female to 100 Male Dubia 5/1.
The test consisted of 26 days with a group of sexually mature males and females. We harvested 7292 nymphs with an average weight of .042 each.
This average comes to a production of 280 baby nymphs produced each day over the 26 day period.
I am continuing to test the same group over the next 30-45 days and will report a 60 day cycle when completed.
Vents placed to hold needed humidity with excellent air exchange and minimal heat loss.
Dubia like to be in close quarters and this is a perfect size for up to 500 adult females and 50-100 males. 5/1 or 10/1 Ratio.
Use the large 4 inch vent in front to spray sparingly water directly into the condo unto the flats if required for humidity increase without disturbing the colony.
We also tested it to grow out Medium Nymphs into Adults with little to no loss, and proved out to be very healthy plump Adult Females and very active Males.
Designed to be heated from the bottom with a Temp Controller to regulate a heat mat/pad. ( Purchased separate as a option )
If your reptile room is 85-88 degree's no additional heat is needed for ultimate nymph production.
Add the controller and mat and get that ideal variance of temp for more success in baby production.
We do not recommend using any heat mat/pad without the correct controller to regulate and shut off the unit once the upper limit is met.
Our controller is simple to set up and all connections are plug and play. Simply plug in the mat to the controller, plug the controller into a 120 volt wall outlet, place the temperature probe inside 6 inches from the bottom of the condo this is all that is required for wiring.
Follow the provided instructions with the controller to set the set point temp and your good to go.
Another bonus is the heat mat (bought separate) is long enough to cover two condos on the one controller with no issues.
This is a great way to breed some of your own dubia and save some feeder cost.
Condo comes with a set of egg flats in place for climbs, 6 disposable food and fruit bowls ,Care sheet from us to help you to be a successful Dubia breeder.
Hinged lid for food and water/fruit access. Low disturbance allows for less stress on the females.
We also suggest baby carrot, cucumber slices, banana, apple slices orange slices for hydration for the roaches. Also our Safe water polymer crystals in a shallow dish up top works great as well.
Once you have a mature colony this will pay for itself in a month of baby production under the correct husbandry practices. Then your investment will continue to provide feeders for years to come.
Good Breeding to you !!
