so my house is slowly becoming infested with june bugs and i was wondering if it was okay for my chameleon to eat them
Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. People around here refer to the yellow type beetles as June bugs around here when in fact they are the shiny green ones.I feed june bugs to my lizards here and there during the summer.
I never noticed a noxious odor about them.
We are talking about the same beetle right? The big green ones?
Why are 3/4 of chameleon keepers afraid to feed wild bugs Its just as easy for commercial food to carry parasites also. The benefits of WC bugs out weighs the risk of parasites and other problems any day. Ive been feeding mine WC bugs since I started keeping chams around 8+ years ago. I feed all kinds of wild bugs from various spider species, moths, butterflies, various hopper species etc. Know what you are feeding and that they come from a pesticide free area.feeding wild insects is usually a bad idea because of parasites.
Really? Down here (as far as I know) our June bugs are a redish brown color and are very stupid. They fly into anything and fall staright to the ground. Like a brick.Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. People around here refer to the yellow type beetles as June bugs around here when in fact they are the shiny green ones.
