Insect breeding for reptiles

    (Honestly I'm not too sure where to put this...)

    I've been interested in breeding my own dubia roaches for my bearded dragon, but I know that in some states in America, doing that is either illegal, or you need a permit. What's the situation on breeding feeder insects in Ireland?

    Also, since I live in an apartment, would I be allowed to do this? My partner claims that our landlord would take issue with me breeding roaches and that I wouldn't be able to do so, but this is the first I've heard of something like this. Any info would help out a lot, thank you.

    Hi Amphis,
    I'll move your enquiry into our sub-forum for reptile-keepers, you should get more targeted help there!

    No laws against it as far as I'm aware. I used plastic storage boxes so unless your landlord is going to open boxes in your apartment they'll never know what's in there. They need a heat source to breed so it's highly unlikely that if they did get out that they would infest the apartment.
