Polyphaga aegyptiaca Egyptian Desert Roach

Polyphaga aegyptiaca is a very unusual roach species. Females look like large, rounded scarab beetles while males posess long, black wings. Feed them a little dried dogfood, fruits and vegetables. Like other polyphagid family cockroaches, their primary diet is dried leaves.

Roaches love jelly products which are healthy, clean, don't spoil and don't attract pests or mold like rotting fruit sometimes does, particulary during warmer months of the year. I also offer mine fish food pellets in small amounts for protein and other nutrients. These small pellets disappear quickly and prevent attraction of mites, etc. Subtrate in your roach tank provides both nutrition and humidity for your pets. My roach care sheet is located here.

Small nymphs available for $2.50 each.

Sorry, no shipping to Florida.
