Discoid Roaches


Blaberus discoidales

Discoid Roaches are, and have been, a popular feeder roach in the US for many years. They are the best known of the non climbing feeder roaches commonly bred as food items for the reptile industry. Both adult male and adult female Discoid Roaches have wings but can not fly. Discoid Roaches are live bearers. They are good breeders but not as prolific breeders as both Orange Headed or Blaptica dubia Roaches. Like all roaches Discoid Roaches have a high meat to shell ratio and immature roaches can be used as feeders at any appropriate size for reptiles and arachnids.
