Are you looking for young, virgin Dubia roach males for a breeding project? Do you want to pair new adult males with new adult females or existing female breeders? If so, these lads are just the ticket.
Our newly emerged adult male Dubias are fresh and ready for action. To prepare for their moment of glory, they’ve spent their entire nymph lives gorging on healthy foods. Apples, bananas, squash and other vegetables…and of course our special roach chow. They’ve certainly had it all. And now that they’re adults, they’re ready to put their considerable energy and vitality to good use. The hard work of living like bachelor kings all these months is over, and it’s finally about to pay off.
All kidding aside, we remove adult Dubias from our nymph colonies daily, so we guarantee these males are fresh, young breeders. Average time since they transitioned to adults is a week or less. Besides that, there isn’t much difference between these guys and regular adult males. New males are younger so they tend to be a bit smaller, though this isn’t always the case. There is a lot of variation in adult male Dubia sizes, as is the case with Dubia roaches generally.
It’s worth noting that New Adult Male Dubia Roaches aren’t required for breeding. We know some people like them, which is understandable. They do tend to live a little longer than regular males. We’ve seen reports that fresh males are more productive than older males, but we aren’t sure if this is true. Some Dubia roach breeders believe it, but we haven’t noticed this in our own breeding colonies.
