Adult male Madagascar Hissing Cockroach in this group are around 2"+ in length. 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.
The male hissers were bigger than we were expecting, which was a wonderful surprise! Very fast shipping and only ordered two but got three, very nice of you!
I ordered 2 of these little guys when they arrived at my local post office they were in great condition and packaged great! They also included and extra one as well.I would highly recommend shopping here!
Despite not ordering the heat pack, they sent one anyway with my little roaches! Additionally, they sent an extra roach, making it a total of four instead of three. All for the same price. The shipping was also incredibly fast, and I was able to track their journey the whole way through their connection to the Shop app.
Our class pet George passed away and a first grader cried for his best friend. I quickly placed an order for three new “Georges” and expected them to be here at the end of the week. Surprise!! The George’s showed up two days early and with an EXTRA George! Thanks so much!! You have provided a six year old with four new best friends!
The hissing cockroaches were shipped fast and arrived healthy for a great price!
