 How to start my own feeders?

Question.....I have a bearded dragon and would like to start breeding my own feeders. His favorites are crickets and I’ve seen instructions. But does any place sell starter kits? Now I’ve heard that roaches are easy. Here’s my thing.....at one of the places we lived I had a roach problem in the house. And it FREAKED ME OUT (once I woke up in the a.m. with one crawling on me!)! So I’ve never fed Oscar any. Do they easily escape? And not just from the breeding containers, but from whatever they’re kept in (or from a beardie’s enclosure)? Because I found out that they multiply FAST!!! Now, my crickets r in a cricket keeper so it’s easy. How do you even keep roaches? And is it possible to breed worms? Thanks!
P.S. What’s the average cost of breeding your own (of any of these)?

Reptilover......all the insect breeders that I know are in the bearded forums and Chinese water dragon forums...that is where I learned how to breed roaches and supers and silkies too.

If you want photos and how to set ups for roaches send me your e mail in a PM

What’s a PM? Sorry if that’s a stupid question - I’m not the most computer literate person in the world (at least with the terms anyway)!

Dubia and discoid roaches are easy to breed.
They resemble a beetle more than a german roach but they are still an insect.

Superworms require a bit more effort.



How hands off do you want? What are you willing to do or spend to have feeders?
