Cockroaches!

Post by markie » Fri May 15, 2009 11:27 pm

:shock:

... Today I went feed my crabs to find 3 cockroaches crawling around in their tat. lovely.

Cockroaches like our back porch. That's usually all I see them except maybe once a month around the house. I feed my crabs food from The Addiction Store and it's about 80% humidity and 81 degrees in their tank.

What now? :/

Cockroaches love beer. Can you put the crabs in a temporary habitat and set out the beer in a deep dish to drown the bugs?

Are the roaches winged? If not, you can keep them out with a vaseline barrier around the top of the tank, they cannnot cross that.
