Woodies - live cockroaches food to reptiles and spiders

Wood cockroaches, also known as "woodies," offer several benefits as feeder insects for reptiles and spiders:

  1. Nutritional value: Wood cockroaches are high in protein and low in fat, making them a nutritious food source for insectivorous pets.
  2. Easy digestion: Like Dubia roaches, wood cockroaches likely have less chitin in their exoskeletons compared to other feeder insects, making them easier for reptiles to digest.
  3. Gut loading potential: Wood cockroaches can be easily gut-loaded with nutritious foods to enhance their nutritional value for the pets consuming them.
  4. Long lifespan: Wood cockroaches have a relatively long lifespan compared to other feeder insects, which means they can be kept alive longer before being fed to pets.
  5. Stimulating natural hunting behaviors: Their movement can help stimulate the hunting instincts of reptiles and spiders, making feeding time more engaging for the pets.
  6. Variety of sizes: Wood cockroaches are available in different sizes, allowing pet owners to choose appropriate sizes for their animals at various life stages.
  7. Low maintenance: Wood cockroaches are generally easy to care for and don't require complex housing or feeding regimens.
  8. Quiet: Unlike crickets, wood cockroaches are quiet, making them a less disruptive option for home environments.
  9. Low risk of infestation: Wood cockroaches are less likely to infest homes compared to some other feeder insects.
  10. No odor: Wood cockroaches typically don't produce strong odors, making them more pleasant to keep than some other feeder insects.

These benefits make wood cockroaches an attractive option for reptile and spider owners looking for a nutritious, convenient, and engaging food source for their pets.
