Default Roaches that can't fly


What are some good feeder roaches that can't fly?

I'm not generally squeamish about animals but flying roaches give me
chills because of some incidents when I was younger when they flew at
my face or otherwise seemed to "attack". I'm not bothered so much by
the roaches themselves, just their ability to fly. If they can stay on
a flat surface and I can pick them up with gloves on then they won't
bother me.

I was thinking of getting a tarantula or vinegaroon or even a scorpion
one day, and I know those all eat insects, so I wasn't sure whether I
should try to feed crickets or roaches. I used to play with crickets
when I was younger so they don't bug me. *L*

I've heard that crickets can be really hard to catch for vinegaroons?

Anyway, thanks for any info you can give.

Look for this thread from a couple days or so ago:

"Freezing crickets for feeding?"
Arlier covered it, and there's a url also.

For someone who recommends to other people that they should google for
answers to their questions (without looking first yourself to see if
the info is there I've noticed), you ask a lot of questions.

You can do better than that... you know maccaroons? Vinegaroons
are like those, except a bit on the acidic side.

Vinegaroons (aka Giant whip scorpion) are awesome little inverts. I've been
thinking about getting one for a while, but I'm finding myself too obsessed
with tarantulas. Getting a new one next week (Chilobrachys fimbriatus, yay!).

Thanks. I thought maybe the hissers couldn't fly but I didn't know
for sure because I've never seen one up close to see if it had wings
or not. I've only seen them on tv. The last thing I wanted was to open
whatever I was keeping them in and have one fly right into my face.

Vinegaroons are the coolest pet bugs I've ever seen. Well, except
maybe for some of those ornate mantids.
