Are these wild caught bugs or captive bred bugs?

Wild caught bugs have potentially come into contact with pesticides. Parasite risk aside (you could always argue that captive-bred feeders have the potential to transit parasites to your pet, and you'd have a completely valid argument!), that alone would make me reluctant to feed them. Best to play it safe and stick to captive-bred, than be sorry later. IMO, at least.

Thanks! I'll stick to mealworms and Isopods.
