In-depth information about 1-¼ inch Dubia Roaches
As usual, our standard Dubia roach feeder description applies to 1-¼ inchers. They are super nutritious, eminently gut-loadable, and very easy to keep and feed. Animals tend to love them, and so on.
They’re also large. 1-¼ inchers weigh about 1 gram each when fully fed. This significant bulk is a result of gorging on healthy foods nonstop for four months. If you haven’t noticed, we’re a bit obsessed with roach breeding and nutrition. We feed our Dubia nymphs so well that some people find it — shall we say — a bit curious.
But our significant efforts pay off in the quality of our nymph feeders and adult breeders. Our 1-¼ inch Dubia roaches contain more of the good stuff animals need and less of the bad stuff they don’t. Relative to other feeders, Dubia are high in protein and other beneficial nutrients.
One thing notable about 1-¼ inchers is that you can gut load them to the extreme. At this size and larger, they can fill their empty stomachs with up to twice their body weight of food! Provide them with healthy foods, and these roaches become nutrition delivery machines. In return, your animals will thank you with strong feeding behavior and good health.
All in all, Dubia roaches are outstanding feeders. Customers have even reported that their animals go crazy when our roaches arrive. We love to hear this, and it makes sense considering the effort we put into raising healthy roaches. If there’s an animal out there that hates Dubia roaches, we haven’t run across it.
In sum, 1-¼ inch Dubia roaches are large feeders for medium and large insectivores. They provide excellent nutrition that you can boost even further with gut loading, and they have all the right moves to trigger even the most discerning animal’s feeding response.
Item specific sizing notes
- With 1-¼ inchers, some size variation is normal.
- Roaches are larger or smaller depending on hydration and feeding status. When necessary, you can alter their length by providing or withholding food.
- Provide roaches with food and water or gutload them a day or two before feeding to plump them up to their full size.
