Safe to eat black soldier flies?

I have some pheonix worms that have started turning into flies. We have a rescue that we are rehabilitating right now that doesn't have much of an appetite but she is loving the black soldier fly larva that has turned to actual flies. Before I let her have anymore I just wanted to check to see if they are ok to feed.

If beardie can catch them .... they are very a good protein source ..

so are :
silkworm moths

and for adult beardies
mealworm lavae , pupae and beetles are great treats , as superworm lavae and pupae , I expect superworm beetles are fine too but they do look big and scary ...

My dragon loves chasing the flies around. He's able to digest them more easily too which is a bonus. They are fairly slow moving (for flies) and are pretty easy to catch if they get away from you.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
