Is this an acceptable treat?

Hey everyone,

I just caught this housefly/blue bottle fly in my house and am wondering if it could be a good one time treat. I don’t make a practice of feeding wild caught bugs, but I wanted to see if this enriching bug would be ok to feed one time. Any thoughts ?

I let the fly go. I didn’t want to risk it. I already have some BSFL, so I’ll just wait for those to mature into flies. But if I catch a wild katydid/grasshopper wouldn’t those be safe since they feed on grass/plants?

If you are 100% sure there is no chance of pesticides being sprayed in the area, feed away.

Also understand that if you choose to do this your Cham should be examined by a vet yearly just to make sure no freak accidents happen.

Caught dozens last night.
