dubia roaches coloney


Active Member
Hey everyone.

Ive been looking into starting a smallish dubia roach coloney, however ive got a question.

Ive seen they need a heat mat. The room ill be keeping them seems to sit between 21 and 25degress celcius. What temperature should they ideally be sitting at?

Also if using a heat mat with a thermostat. Where do you put the probe?

I keep my roach colonies at 82 degrees and they are breeding like crazy. I dont use heat pads...I heat the room they are in.
