Just wondering, How will Dubia do outside in Florida? I want to start a colony but on the porch rather than inside.

Welcome to the TeguTalk community, glad you could join us!!

What part of Florida? They cannot take winters in north Florida.

Hey Bobby, Thanks for replying and Welcoming me. Im in Central Florida, I would move them inside for the winters but during spring, summer and fall would they be ok on the porch?

You are more than welcome!!

They should be just fine as long as they do not get too hot of cold.

Hey cfcsean,
I don't know if you know this or not but it's illegal to ship any species of roaches to FL. Just thought I'd give you a heads up if you were planning to buy online.

That is somewhat true, discoids are not one of them. :)

One thing you must watch out for is ants, fire ants will try to get in there if given the chance. Also I am more then glad to help!! :)
