    Found something funny...

    So I put all my roaches in a giant tank out of boredom and to see what they do. Well last week I checked on them and found a lobster roach in there. I'm confused now. I haven't had lobs in over a year and don't even live in that house anymore. I asked the guy I bought the last batch of roaches about it but I doubt it was from him... Where the heck did the lobster roach come from!?

    That is REALLY weird. Only one roach I would assume it somehow found its way into your collection through who you bought your bugs from, even if you doubt it's from him. That's, like, the only option, really... haha.

    Or could you have had one hiding in one of your containers? ...like, that one roach I had in my H mac's container was in there for a LONG time before I discovered it. Maybe you had one from waaaaaaay back when that just now decided to escape and go play with some like minded friends.

    We've also seen another type of dark colored small roach with wings (and by small I mean lobster or lat sized) living in the insulation around the hot water heater.

    ...The plot thickens...

    Well I haven't seen the one in the tank recently but I did manage to catch one of the ones in the bathroom. It resemebles a female lat but the color and backside aren't right. I think its a Periplanata americana (I forget how to spell it). The one in the tank looks like an oriental maybe. I need to get a better look.

    You should try to take some pics! I bet you could get a quick confirmation at a cockroach forum.

    I avoid that forum... Not a fan of some of the people there.

    Is there only one forum? I can't say I've ever been on one but I know they exist. hehe... Maybe you should start your own! Like ArachonphilesAnonymous got started when people got sick of AB.
