Hi!
I've been repeatedly seeing small, reddish-brown roaches amongst the leaf litter in my yard, and I've collected two females. I just had them identified by another bug-loving friend as Pennsylvania Wood Roaches. I'm kind of interested in breeding them as pets, because they are so gosh darn cute :D. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Feed them dead leaves and make sure you have dead wood in there. I've never bred them but I had some in this setup. Carrots are also welcome too.

Thanks, but are you confusing mine for Cryptocercus? Mine ate fish food and apple pieces.

Thx. Actually, I think that Pennsylvania Wood Roaches eat a bit of fungus (like White Rot) because I saw mine nibbling on some lichen.
