Get a new colony up and running fast with our Dubia Roach Starter Colony. Each one comes with a complete mix of Dubia roaches in the sizes and stages found in successful, established breeding colonies. This means you get breeding females, mature males, and a mix of nymphs in various sizes.
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 – typically newborn Minis through 1-½ inch
- A nymph mix that resembles the successful breeding colony they came from
For example, a 250 Starter Colony comes with at least 25 adult females, five adult males, and 220 nymphs of various sizes ranging from extra-small through extra-large.
Our 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. However, 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 make exceptionally healthy and productive stock for breeding projects. We focus on providing our roaches with the ideal environment and superior nutrition. This is important for production because roaches store up nutrients their entire juvenile lives in preparation for breeding, which relies on those reserves.
The healthier Dubia roaches are as pre-adults and the more nutrients they store up, the longer and more productive breeding lives they’ll have as adults.
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, so get your breeding project started right with our Dubia Roach Starter Colony!
