I was wondering if blaptica dubia roaches can invade your house because my mom will kill me if they get free on accident and invade our house Thanks.

i don't know where you live, but i would say no they are not an infesting species. they are a tropical species and most, if not all, homes just don't support them enough to allow them to breed and infest. I have had some escape only to be found dead.

We've had a couple escape and haven't found them. But crickets.... we've got them in every room!!!

I'd be more worried about more reptiles invading your home.
One day I had one bearded dragon and now I have all kinds reptiles invading. :wink:

The roaches and crickets don't take up too much room. The reptiles are taking over our house!!!

Im not sure how many more animals we can fit in our house though, I have the tegu my brother has 5 snakes boa's and pythons one is albino and 2 of them are like 7 or 8 feet then we have 2 cats one dog and a fish tank full of fish. I would love to have two tegus though but i dont have a big enough enclosure nor can i fit one.

We've got you beat! See my sig. We're picking up our FOURTH Tegu on Saturday to hopefully breed Blues. I'm planning on getting a RTB in the spring.

Haha. B. Dubia are the least likely to infest your house, IMO. If I dumped 1000 of them on the floor, half would probably die from the stress or play dead. :lol: They're my favorite roach for a reason.

I've almost dumped a few hundred a few times. I'm not going to test your theory!!
