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 give birth to over forty 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.
