Hey guys something I have been doing lately is offerings wax worms and/or mealworms in my beardies salad in the morning is it actually ok for a few on her food every morning? I layer them like a cake so she has to eat her veggies/greens to get them last few days I have put only mealworms in her morning salad no wax worms and with the mealworms she can be stubborn and can careless if she doesn't wanna eat on a given day (shedding) she goes bonkers over wax worms 😁

Just looking for some feedback

Yeah that's OK to an extent as long as she's eating the veges along with the bugs. That encourages eating a varied diet which is good. Just don't want her to get too dependent on a single food source, especially if it's something like waxworms with a high fat content. If she doesn't want to eat some days, that's OK. Their appetites will fluctuate naturally.

She may love silk worms and hornworms if that's the case. Certainly worth trying out.
