Dubia Feeder Roaches!

Dubia Feeder Roaches!

Uncle Bill's is now carrying the exceedingly sought-after and popular feeders, Dubia Roaches! 

dubia feeders

 They might not sound appealing at first, but there are many benefits to feeding Dubia Roaches instead of crickets or most worms.  They are actually rapidly becoming one of the most popular feeding choices by herpetology enthusiasts.  They can be fed, in addition to reptiles, to certain amphibians, fish, birds, and some invertebrates.  

Dubias are relatively more nutritious in protein than meal worms, super worms, or crickets - and protein is much more important for your reptiles than fillers or carbohydrates.  They are also very hardy and easy to care for, living up to 2 years with simple food and water.  

A few more reasons to choose Dubia Roaches over Crickets are:
*    Crickets smell
*    Crickets jump
*    Crickets can be noisy
*    Crickets can bite and possibly injure reptiles  
*    Crickets are not as meaty (have more shell)
*    Crickets don't grow as large
*    Crickets are more likely to die shortly after being bought

Dubia Roaches do not climb or fly as long as they are in a smooth-sided surface container.  They also cannot breed in temperature climates lower than 80 degrees, so your home is safe if any escape.  

These Dubias contain nutrients essential for insect-eating species' overall health such as more calcium, more protein, more fat, and more ash than crickets.  Your pet will be more regular, as well, due to their thinner exoskeletons compared to crickets.  The Dubia Roaches from our supplier are gut-loaded with homemade, premium organic food along with fresh fruits - unlike many other companies which tend to use ground dog food.

Kids of all ages can participate in various tasks related to keeping their aquarium running, and often become deeply invested in the saltwater fish or freshwater fish they select. However, keeping an aquarium can also be a relatively low-maintenance hobby, making it perfect for busy pet owners.

Aquariums reduce stress and anxiety.
