Searched for the answer to my question but could not find it anywhere. Sorry if it's buried somewhere...:confused:

I have a few young Dubia I think are almost full grown and have stopped feeding my roaches off now. I just got my first batch of babies and am VERY excited!:D As they grow I want to maintain a 3 to 1 sex ratio and would like to know how I would be able to sex the young roaches and be able to feed off the males instead of my females. Also, should I seperate the babies from the colony and put them in a different container? I have been doing that with my Lobster roaches as the babies come out.:confused::)

The females will have a larger end section than the males, you can sex even babies this way. But you need a male next to a female to see the difference.
