THIS SPECIES IS A HOUSEHOLD PEST. KEEP AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Yes, this is the infamous German roach. I recommend this species only to dedicated hobbyists willing to work with one of the world’s peskiest bugs. To reduce the risk of any of escapes, I keep mine in a completely sealed container fitted with brass microscreen. These roaches breed like roaches!
