Roach poo mix in topsoil

I am getting ready to break down my 90gal to replace the substrate. It's been up and running for over a year and the plants do not seem to be doing as well as they were in the beginning. My son has a bearded dragon, so I started a Dubia roach colony. They produce a lot of poop and it really doesn't have an odor. I was looking for a way to use it and I thought it might be good to mix with the top soil I was planning to use for my substrate. Is this a good idea or no?

Sure, why not except if they're carriers of some disease.
