😂 noooo omggg. I’ll stick to the useless insects. Silkworms are usually sold by the children at schools here, but I have no idea where they come from, so I’m sceptical to buy them for Igor. Plus... moths.. ugh.

I would be too! So your okay with mealworms and them turning into beetles but not silk worms and turning into moths or calciworms into flies😂

😂 yes I am. The beetles are completely useless. They can’t fly, can’t bite, they can’t climb. They literally will fall onto their back and die there if I don’t turn them back on their stomachs, they can’t get back up after falling over.

They are seriously useless. The easiest feeder insects ever, personally 🤣

They can bite you know. They just don't because theres no reason to. Crickets can bite if they want to too.&#x1f602; How do you think they eat? Biting. they just fancy human&#x1f602;

Yes they do &#x1f602; it’s a big thing in the summer. Everyone wants silkworms for the pretty silk they weave.

Wait really?! I seriously didn’t know that. Well then, they’re docile &#x1f602; I’ve never been bitten, nor has Igor, so that’s great.
Crickets are quick though! Igor struggles catching them &#x1f602; he isn’t the best hunter hog in the world.

Haha not many do
They tend to not bite but they can and rare times do. Very rare. I've only hear of 1 hedgehog owner being bitten by a cricket&#x1f602; Main insect people feed that does bite are morioworms and their bite is pretty bad compared to others so I've read anyway, never used morioworms and never been bitten by them and never will&#x1f602;
