Gotta love Roches, I have three species I use.
EDIT: this is a poll for feeding T's not your other pets
"other" please define what you use

Roaches, Crickets and fruit flies for slings.
...here--time does not exist,
except in the passing of day and night
and generations of spiders.
I keep roaches and meal worms, but I feed much heavier from the roaches.

I use discoids and lateralis, and sometimes i go to the pet store and get crickets just to mix it up... ihave colonys of both roach species....it works for me.

Yeah, I think it would be more interesting to find out how many people use which species of roach. Everyone pretty much uses crickets. If I were writing it, this poll would have said:
what do you frequently use?
2. lobster roaches
3. Blatta lateralis
4. Blaptica dubia
5. Other roach species
6. other feeders
and make it multiple choice as this one was. I say frequently because lots of people will toss in the odd mouse, raw meat, or wild caught thing.
According to our local bylaws roaches are a no - no So for now it's crickets.
It would also be itneresting to know which species people have used. For example right now I use only lobsters but I have used dubia and lateralis in the past and I'm plannign to get into lateralis again this spring.
I use multiple feeders. It all depends on the size of invert, and what they prefer. I have some that will not touch a roach. Others love them.... Lobster and dubias

I have a colony of dubia. That is all my T's eat.
B dubia and B lateralis fed primarily apples, potatos, bread and catfood along with random scraps of whatever.
