IMPORTANT: Be sure to look at size in INCHES when ordering, as our sizes differ from some other companies. Sorry, we do NOT ship live roaches to Florida.
These dubia roach nymphs measure between 3/8″-1/2″ long. This may be similar in size to “medium” or “small” dubias offered elsewhere. PLEASE CHECK WITH A RULER to be sure this is the size you want before ordering.
Anything that you would feed a small cricket to will eagerly scarf down medium dubias, including: newly hatched bearded dragons, small lizards such as geckos and anoles, amphibians, and other exotic pets. Also called orange spotted roaches, Guyana spotted roach, tropical spotted roach, or Argentinian wood roach, Dubias are high in protein and very low in chitin compared to other types of feeder insect. In simple terms: more meat, less shell!
We measure feeder insects by weight rather than exact count. This ensures consistent nutritional value per order. We calculate about 10% overcount to make sure you get at least the listed number of live roaches in your order.
We ship live insects M-W. We ship via USPS Priority Mail. While not guaranteed, Priority packages usually arrive within 2-3 days once your order has shipped. Orders placed after 12 noon Eastern time on Wednesday will be processed the following Monday. Insects are shipped fully contained within a sturdy deli cup with lid (perforated for proper air flow), and supplied with egg crate for shelter and food for the journey. These are packed securely in a sturdy cardboard box.
Shipping rates and destinations: We ship dubia roaches ONLY to the lower 48 states, EXCEPT for Florida. Sorry, we do NOT ship internationally or to Hawaii or Alaska.
