B dubia do not lay eggs ,,


if You are sure that they was from eggs then I wuld say they are some sort of Periplaneta spp. but I doub in that , I wuld guess they are N cinerea ....

best way is to keep them till mature and than we will be able to have better guessys

I don't know exactly which species it is (but they are small and burrowing), and yes your woodlice were harvested from their tank ;-)

I suspect they are this species:
Surinam cockroach Pycnoscelus surinamensis

Yes looks like Surinam Roaches to me, I bought some from Virginia Cheeseman a while back. They breed like Billyo, but the buggers are so fast most of my T's don't even realise they are there... laugh.gif I tried putting them in the freezer for 30 seconds and that helped matters.
