I was in a pet shop yesterday & picked up a box of "woodies"(pisces)
I was reading the writing on the bottom of the box & it read ...Large woodies (de-activated) any one know what this means?
I emailed Pisces for an explanation ..NO reply.
It seems roaches are programmed to take over the world by aliens, those ones have had their processing unit removed.
sure they weren't fly pupae???R.I.P Tajman.........
Possibly they can't be used for breeding in your own colony?Knowledge - The one thing you can give away freely while still keeping for yourself

I've had tubs of pisces woodies multiple, although don't ever remember seeing them labelled as 'de-activated', had a look at their website and the only place they mention 'deactivated' is in relation to fly pupae. Let us know what they say IF they ever get back to you
Sorry people looks like I might have stuffed up(again) reading the label. I have been informed by a mate that the deactivated was underneath the fly pupae probably relating to that. If that is so it is easily misread as as I asked the store manager & he read it the same way as me!! oh well
Just a friendly tip, try to buy your woodies from a private breeder such as Livefoods Unlimited. Stay away from the commercial stuff..Cheers, Sam
Or better yet, breed your own it's really easy and cheap. If you breed them yourself you have the added bonus of knowing they are up to your high standards. I bought mine to start with then started breeding them. They don't smell as badly as I expected them too and I have an almost endless supply
Thats a great idea Sax! Is there a thread up already about it to save me asking and someone typing how to do it?
Mine isn't on as big a scale as this (only need it for a couple of Ackies) but yeah works pretty nicelyKnowledge - The one thing you can give away freely while still keeping for yourself

+1 on the mealworm suggestion, I added a few dozen to my tub a few months ago, completely fixed my fruit fly problem. I started with a few hundred med and large woodies from a breeder and 9 mths later I have thousands, and I mean thousands. I feed mine a mix of rolled oats, fishfood flakes, cat biscuits and calcium/vit powder, and just throw them any veg scraps I have for moisture
Thanks Sax, I'll be taking a look at that for sure
