Adult male 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.
they were much larger than I expected, closer to 1.5 inches than the ~3/4 inches I expected. But they seem healthy and happy!
Handsome boys! Arrived quickly and in good shape.
Delivered quickly and with extras. Will order from again!
I ordered 3 cockroaches, and received 4! All of them were perfectly healthy, and ate almost instantly. It took a bit for them to be acclimated to their new home, but once they did, it was exploration time!
Very pretty boys
