It's not difficult.
And its very much worth the minimal effort for the health and happiness of the animals we're responsible for.

I breed a few bugs, I buy a few types of bugs (there are many online vendors, you're not just limited to your local shops), and in season I catch some in nature.
I also spent considerable effort and energy convincing a local pet store to start stocking more than the standard crickets and mealworms. It took a couple years, but now even if I dont feel like placing an order online, I can still easily pick up a few choices (costs a little more, but the convenience is nice) any time I like.
