Question
Hi.
would like to know what size container you would need to house hissing cockroaches.
Thanks

Answer
Helana,

Just about anything with a tight-fitting lid should work, be sure to provide for enough air exchange. I've seen the large plastic boxes that people use to store sweaters used. Get some wood shavings from the pet store as a base.
