I would think so. My understanding is that's what a lot of people in different parts of Europe do, I assume because of low cricket availability. Just make sure you only offer fruits as a rare treat, like once or twice a week, with the daily veggies. The only exception being prickly pear cactus, which can be given daily. :D
I'm either a bearded dragon owner that has roach colonies to sustain her, or a roach colony owner that has a bearded dragon to keep the colonies in check. The jury's still out. :D

Sounds like you're all set. :) I almost forgot, make sure the locusts are the right size, i.e. no bigger than the space between the dragon's eyes.

I have heard from the Termite Inspections unit that these dragons can eat termites as well. So you can also feed her with termites if you wish.
