 Insects?????

Ok so my parents don’t want me to feed my bearded dragon live insects but thats what he needs. We give him freeze dried right now. I think its flukers medley treat. they say its sad. But its not. Not really. He is going to die from lack of nutrition. Give me a link? Something? He is a little over a year old. Thanks!!!!!

I got can o crickets and he seems to love them. And its mostly about the smell, sound, and other inconveniences. How do you make that better? Cleaning it, storing it in a small room where it doesn’t bother people, etc. ? I am not getting rid of him. He has made it just fine. But is can o crickets ok? They smell bad but whatever! Thanks everyone!

Can O anything is just sooo wrong. I wouldn’t feed freeze dried crickets. Where are the nutrients in that ...

Why not purchase crickets live at Pet Co or Pet Smart?? Or find a real reptile store and get them for approx .10 each

Pet stores in my neighborhood even sell roaches... but I raise my own anyway.

Is your dragon getting any veggies???

Lucky.... my petstores only sell crickets,wax/horn/mealworms....everything else i have to order in bulk sizes but i finally got my colonies together. My insect eating herps go through more than 100 insects a week all ttogether so breeding my own helps alot thanks to researching.

yes he eats veggies, greens, fruits, and insects. My petstores sell maybe worms, crickets, and fruit flies.

I would breed them but I don’t know if I want that in my house.

Any more replies? I bought enough can o crickets to last weeks. Maybe next week we can buy some crickets. Thanks

You dont have to keep the bugs in your home if you dont want to but depending on how many live insects he eats as you purchase you’ll be running daily/weekly to a petstore. Breeding the insects in our home is beneficial for our herps and especially the owner because we don’t have to make so many trips to a store and were raising our own healthy,gutloaded insects which is good for our herp friends. But always glad to help and dont hesitate to ask anything.

the site restricts e mails ...you have to spell it out
so and so dot com....lol

I buy 6-8.00 of crickets at a time I keep them in a critter keeper (8.00) and feed them oatmeal and a piece of apple or potato for moisture. So I only have to run to the pet store every 2 weeks or 10 days.

Ok good luck
