Talking Roach Breeding

Here are my two roach breeding bins, they're a both 19 litre "really useful box" from Staples with holes drilled through the top

Blaptica Dubia:
19 L plastic box
egg crates (free from local restaurant in NY)
carrots
occasional cat food

Ive had this setup for about 2 years now and have yet to run out, I don't heat this bin because my pacman doesnt eat them fast enough.

Panchlora Nivea:
19 L plastic box
eco earth
terrarium moss
wood/log
heating pad
vaseline

just started this several months ago, they really chew up the wood, of course these roaches fly so vaseline barrier is needed (theyre also harder to catch). They also seem to need more heat/humidity than the dubia

I'm also looking for an additional flying type of roach and a more active/fast roach any tips/suggestions?

Lobster roaches (Naupheta cinerea) are pretty fast. They are fast breeders when kept above 80 degrees F. However, they can easily climb glass so if you choose them be sure to watch your frog eat to ensure that they don't escape.

Turkistan roaches (Blatta lateralis) are extremely fast and extremely fast breeders. They can not climb glass. Their only major fault is their size, they only get to be about as big as a cricket, but breed so fast that it doesn't take long before you have enough to spare for your frog to eat several dozen at a time!
