Cuban Burrowing Cockroach
(Byrsotria fumigata)

Care level: Easy, Beginner
Native range: Cuba
Maximum size: Up to 5cm

Cuban Burrowing cockroaches (Byrsotria fumigata) are an easy to keep pet or culturable livefood for insectivores. Similar to Blaptica dubia, they are unable to fly or climb smooth surfaces, easy to breed and culture, and produce no noise or bad odours like crickets. Nutritionally ideal as a staple diet for many animals, they provide a great way to reduce your animal food bills. They can also be used as vivarium custodians, to produce bioactive substrate and process waste.
