    Hey guys I live in Southern California. I own about 8 tarantulas. My local pet store just closed down. I want to know if there is any food source I can gather in my yard before I find a place to buy roaches. Thanks and please leave me some recommendations.

    Many will warn you of the dangers of wild caught prey because of pesticides and diseases. Depending on the size of your tarantulas they can go quite a while without food. I believe there are some roaches for sale in the "for sale" setion of this forum. I bet they would reach you with plenty of time to spare.

    Good luck!

    Agree no wild caught food. Isn't worth the risk
