Red Head Roaches
Oxyhaloa deusta (Red Head Roach) are a fantastic smaller feeder species to keep. Red Head Roaches are extremely easy to breed and love being in crowded conditions. They are very prolific and will outgrow bins quickly when high humidity is offered. New born nymphs hatch out dark in color the size of fruit flies making them excellent feeders for spiderlings, mantids, baby chameleons, frogs and other small insectivores. Adults of this species have dark wings that appear a deep purple in certain light. Red Head Roaches can be kept on egg crate like dubia or on a substrate to help keep humidity up. They require very little bin space for the amount of roaches being housed and can easily go 7-10 days in between feedings.
