These species mature at over an inch long but under approximately two inches. They are ideal feeders for many reptiles and amphibians, as well as large predatory arthropods including mantids, centipedes, scorpions, and tarantulas.

This roach has made a name for itself due to itself incredibly fast, steady reproduction, softness, and palatability. Although this species can climb, it's fairly bad at it and is easily stopped by a slick barrier. Females can reach 1.5 inches long and can give birth to 15-40 babies. This is probably the easiest roach to care for: All that's needed is a container, something to hide under, and food! Heating will dramatically increase reproduction.
Presently, the Guyanna spotted roach is one of the most popular feeder roaches. They are very easy to rear and cannot climb. The adult males may be able to fly but it has not been proven yet. After 2-5 months of internal incubation, the female Guyanna spotted roach gives birth to 10-50 babies, which mature in 4-8 months. When picked up, the nymphs of this species have an interesting defense mechanism; they curl up into a ball and play dead.

This species is often misidentified as Byrsotria fumigata. The males have two wing forms; short and long (long is pictured above.) This species reproduces at approximately the same rate as Blaptica dubia. However, the males (far right) are shorter but fatter while the females (middle right) are overall larger. They cannot climb or fly and reproduce best with a substrate.
