Seller: andrew547 (205) 93.3%, Location: Berkeley, California, Ships to: US, Item: 173172911609 These are professionally raised Buffalo beetle cleaner crews for Dubia roach colonies. They eat leftover food particles and moist frass (roach poop), thus reducing the substrate that mold and bacteria use to gain a foothold and thrive. By definition, a roach colony overrun by mold or bacteria is an unhealthy one. Buffalo beetles and their larvae reduce the risk of this happening between cleanings, and they may allow the time between cleanings to be extended. In this way, adding Buffalo beetles to roach colonies helps promote good health, growth, and productivity. While Buffalo beetles can be used as cleaners for any roach species, they are particularly helpful for Dubia roaches. B. Dubia are somewhat die-off prone, and cleaning crews are often recommended by the professionals who raise them. Buffalo beetles are perhaps the most commonly used cleaner insect in Dubia roach colonies. They are efficient, prolific, and they thrive in the conditions under which most Dubia roaches are raised. Buffalo beetles are technically named Alphitobius diaperinus, and are commonly known as lesser mealworms and litter beetles. They are very similar to actual mealworms, but smaller. In nature, they are found in the warmth and nutritional richness of manure piles, so they are right at home in roach frass. NOTE: Cleaner crew size is approximate. We try to overstock each order between 10 and 20%. There may be a mix of beetles/larvae, depending on the mix in the colony at the time they're collected. Beetles and larvae both function as cleaner crews. Default shipping is FREE via USPS First Class mail. We also offer expedited shipping below cost. Regarding size, 50 is plenty for small and medium Dubia colonies. The 200 and 500 numbers are for either very large Dubia (or other) roach colonies or for multiple colonies. 500 of the cleaner insects, for example, can be split between five 30-gallon Dubia colonies. In the end, it's OK to go a little over or under with respect to number. Their population will rise or fall over the course of a few months depending on conditions, which includes food availability. NOTE: Please order only if you can securely house these beetles. They don't fly and can't climb anything Dubia roaches can't climb, so they generally work well for roach-keepers in Dubia colonies. However, you are solely responsible for them, so do your research first to be sure they're right for you and your situation. We have read that Buffalo beetles may be considered a pest in some situations (like poultry plants where they live in the manure), for example.

These things are important. If you do them, the cleaner crews will likely make it alive and well. If they don't, we'll refund the cost of the order, minus shipping.
