I still can not stand the giant dubia. Although the worst thing for my gag reflex has been the Blue bottle spikes. They are straight up maggots. So nasty.I'm trying to start a colony also so I have the giant ones and I thought I was ok with dubias when they were just little, they were kinda cute cuz they reminded me of rolly pollys but the big ones oh God even talking about it just made me shiver. Heeby geebies for sure.
