Our Dubia Roach Size Sampler allows you to experiment with a small number of roaches. Each Sampler contains exactly 30 Dubia roach nymphs – 15 from each of two consecutive sizes of your choosing.
The Size Sampler is a good way to find the size that works best for your animal. For example, say you don’t know if your gecko or hatchling chameleon can handle ¼-inch nymphs or it’s still too small for anything larger than Minis. You can try the Mini and ¼-inch Size Sampler and test it out. Or maybe you have a medium size bearded dragon that you want to feed the largest nymphs it can handle. Order the 1 inch and 1-¼-inch Size Sampler and test them both. Whatever the case, there’s a Dubia Roach Size Sampler for you and your animal.
Or it could be that you’re unfamiliar with our sizing. We do our best to accurately and consistently size our Dubia roaches, but this is tricky for many reasons. Also, different sellers have different measurement methods. ½-inch nymphs from one company, for example, can be a different size than ½-inch nymphs from another. A Dubia Roach Size Sampler is a good way to see for yourself how we do our sizing.
Samplers are available for every consecutive nymph size.
Why exactly 15 of each? So you can easily figure out which roaches are which size. We package them together to avoid waste, so if the size difference isn’t obvious, separate the largest 15 from the smallest 15 to see it more clearly.
Choosing The Right Size Sampler
NOTE: With a Size Sampler, you may end up with some roaches that are the wrong proportion for your animal. When deciding on a package, consider erring on the side of too small rather than too large. This way you can grow the roaches that aren’t a good fit for your animal over a few weeks. When you buy them too small you can fatten them up and feed them off as they grow without having to deal with waste.
If you buy Dubia roaches that are too large, they will always be too large unless your animal outgrows them. You may be able to reduce their size by withholding food and water. Storing Dubia roaches at room temperature also slows their growth.
