Breeding Dubia Roaches

So currently I have this tub of roaches sitting on top of the terrarium at about 90° and humid. The cost for them adds up quick and I would really like them to breed. Does anybody have any insight on breeding these roaches?

My problem with soil at the bottom of my dubia bin is that they’d bury and I couldn’t find em! I have enough now to shake off egg crates, but it makes finding them all (cleaning/switching containers) near impossible.

Put them in a bin with egg crate or cork bark, keep it warm, and provide a variety of food and in a few months you’ll have a decent colony.

Dubai’s are super easy to breed . I do not use any substrate , Just egg crates , heating paid and lots of veggies . I’ve been breeding them for 21/2 years . @jamest0o0 is really great at colonizing pretty much any Bug . Pick his brain . I do believe he has his hands full till end of month but he will get back to you . Best of luck .

Super easy to set up and maintain.. here's my setup which I was selling but decided to keep: https://www.chameleonforums.com/thr...up-for-sale-located-in-nj.169222/post-1494551

Pretty much all you need:
Decent size bin with a lid .. drill/cut holes and hot-glue pieces of screen over the holes
Head pad with a thermostat
Egg crates
Water crystals
Dubia chow and fruits/veggies
10 adult males, 30 adult females, and a bunch of nymphs
