Get a new Dubia colony up and running fast with a Dubia Roach Starter Colony. Each comes with a complete mix of Dubia roaches in sizes and stages like what you find in successful, established breeding colonies. This means you get newborn Minis, breeding females measuring around 1-½ inch, and Dubia roaches of every size and stage in-between.
Each Dubia Roach Starter Colony contains the following:
- At least 10% adult females
- Adult males in a 1:5 male to female ratio
- A full range of nymph sizes, from newborn Minis through 1-½ inch
- A nymph mix that resembles the successful breeding colony they came from
For example, a 500 count Starter Colony comes with at least 50 adult females, 10 adult males, and 440 nymphs in various sizes.
A Dubia Roach Starter Colony is a good choice for those who want to quickly build a breeding colony that will provide a constant supply of feeders.
As a rule, Dubia are very social roaches. The more opportunity they have for interaction, the healthier they will be. This means that within reason, larger numbers lead to healthier roaches. And because healthy roaches are productive roaches, the more there are the faster they breed.
And of course, faster breeding means faster colony growth. Just a handful of adults can create a complete colony in time, but Dubia roaches are most productive in larger, denser colonies with mixed nymphs like those that occur naturally in the wild.
Because all the roaches in our Starter Colonies are organic-fed and professionally bred, they are exceptionally healthy and productive stock for breeding projects. We focus on providing an ideal environment and nutrition so your Dubia roaches will make great feeders and breeders. We’re so confident you’ll like our roaches that we guarantee them 100%.
Where a new Dubia roach colony ultimately ends up depends on where it begins. That’s how it goes with roach nutrition. Get your breeding project started right with our Dubia Roach Starter Colony!
