Wood Cockroaches | Large

(Nauphoeta cinerea)


Crazy Critters offers you the convenience of high-quality live feeder insects at affordable prices, delivered to your door!

Our wood cockroaches (woodies) are available in 3 different sizes: 

As woodies are highly active, they trigger a positive feed response in pets that are motivated to feed by movement. 

Woodies are a clean, natural and nutritious option as a staple feeder insect in your pet's diet. 

You can feed our insects to your pet:

  • frogs
  • geckos
  • insect-eating birds
  • lizards
  • predatory fish
  • scorpions and spiders
  • turtles; and
  • wildlife

to provide variety in their diet.

Offering your pet various feeder insects promotes better overall health through a more balanced and nutrient-rich diet.

food in its natural state
provides the best source of nutrition


We recommend that you: 

  • unpack your woodies on arrival to reduce the risk of losses

  • store them at room temperature in a storage container without a lid AND

  • apply a 5cm - 10cm strip of Fluon Insect Barrier Paint to the top inside edges of your storage container to prevent escapees! 

  • raise them on a high-protein diet like Crazy Critters Gutload - Premium Insect Food and provide fresh produce twice a week.



Woodies do not have an adequate calcium:phosphorous ratio for many animals and may require additional calcium before feeding to your pet. 

You can achieve a higher calcium content by:

  • dusting your insects immediately before offering to your pet; or 
  • adding the calcium powder to a gutload supplement fed to your insects. 

Note: woodies are also commonly referred to as speckled feeder roaches and lobster roaches.
