I found this thing on my black light in Glamis, California. Coolest colored cockroach I've seen.

It's a male of an Arenivaga species, more commonly known as the sand or desert cockroach.

I agree, it's an Arenivaga.  I really, really, really want some females so I can breed them...

Haha, I was wondering if you might have this species, or if it might be one on your wanted list. It would be cool if I found more than just this one.

Would that be as food source for your ants or you find them intriguing enough to keep as pets?

I want them as pets.  These roaches don't breed enough to use as feeders.  Actually, native CA roaches in general aren't great feeders because they're so hard to breed.

Novomessor cockerelli (2), Brachymyrmex patagonicus (1)Veromessor pergandei (1?), Dorymyrmex bureni (1)

The roach looks really cool.  Wouldn't mind owning a few.

I eventually found some females of these and started a journal for them here (http://www.formicult...eremoblatta-sp/).
