Adult female Madagascar Hissing Cockroach in this group are around 1.5" - 2" in length. These females are young. Unlike Blaptica dubia, these roaches can climb smooth surfaces. Hissers have the same diet as dubia roaches: vegetarian diet.
Hisser adults are more hard bodied and only make good feeders for larger animals like monitors who have the jaw power to crush them.
Depending on the quantity, orders are shipped in a plastic container or bag. When storing, please use an escape proof container as these roaches are excellent climbers. To contain them, use a sealed container with small ventilation holes (screen) or use petroleum jelly (thick) around the inside rim of the container as a barrier they do not like to climb across.
Sorry, we do not ship Madagascar Hissing cockroaches to Florida or Hawaii.
This is my 4th time buying off you guys and I have yet to have a problem. Super lively and healthy roaches also fast shipping. CA. To PA.
I was a little worried about having live critters shipped to Texas during our massive heat wave, but they arrived perfectly safe and sound! Dubi Deli even added a warning label on the package for USPS to avoid heat! I’m super happy and look forward to giving my new pet hissers a long, happy life!
