Should I transition a senior beardie to live bugs ?

Harry is definitely around the age of a senior beardie and her entire life has grown accustomed to eating dried bugs. I know this isn’t the healthiest option and I was told that she ignores bugs and won’t eat them if they’re moving. She lets them sit on her head.

I want to start feeding her dubia roaches and some crickets, is there anyway I can ease her into this or should she continue eating how she does ?

I would try them in an escape proff dish, if that don't work try hand feeding, the last resort would be to let a couple loose and see if she will go after them.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
