In the incessant quest to acquire more pure discoid roach lines, Floridian roach enthusiasts have stepped up to the plate. Carlos Michaelsen, guru of southern Florida’s patchwork of agricultural lands and canals, has provided this strain collected from the mythical “trash road” in Redlands, making it one of the first to be commercially available from the mainland. These may mature a hair larger than the “Banana Bay” keys locality.
