  • Firebrat (Thermobia domestica) Per tub

Common Name: Firebrat
Scientific Name: (Thermobia domestica) 

Size: Various - Per tub
Status: Captive Bred

These cute little creatures make a great meal for a large variety of bugs, amphibians and reptiles. They also make a great little pet bug in their own right and look good in a bio-active set-up.

How I keep mine

I keep my Firebrats in a plastic jar or small tank with about 2cm of bran on the base and pieces of egg carton to hide under. I then put a piece of fine net (net curtain) over the jar or tank and secure with an elastic band. I place a piece of Oasis in a shallow dish and keep this moist for egg laying. I never spray the Firebrats as they seem to thrive in hot, dry , airy conditions.

Although I haven't kept them for long, they are proving to be an excellent food for many of my creatures, small spiders, Assassin bugs, praying mantids, Tail-less Whip scorpions etc.
