I’ve always wanted a Dubia Roach breeder so I need some clarifications. Thanks!
1. Is it true that cheaper deals usually give you only males? I found one for 100 roaches for 10$
2. Any recommendations on which to buy? Link please.
3. Any tips-
Thanks Guys!!!

I don't like the place, but if I was you I would look on Arachnoboards.com. Alot of good sellers there. I'd look up hisserdude to start.

Try going to a reptile expo, they sell breeding starters there. Males have wings, females don't.

I used Dubi Deli and you can purchase i think up to 3 sizes to try, only laying shipping which for me was i think $7. Get the biggest sizes and the biggest won't take long at all to mature. that's what i did and within a month had breeding dubias. Cheap and effective lol. Also, i recieved like 10 roaches...maybe like 12. I know it was more than i was expecting. 

Aphaenogaster fulva
