Default Meal Worms

Is it okay to give freeze dried meal worms, or do they have to be alive?

There's a couple threads floating around here that give arguments for both sides, but the consensus is that both are perfectly acceptable

Oh wow that poor baby! How sad

Does this change the consensus of freeze dried being ok? Or is it more of a WITHIN MODERATION idea, as with all treats?

Personally, I feed my guys live ones, just because they're more easily accessible and I think it's hilarious watching my husband get grossed out trying to feed them

That's a perfect example of only being able to learn by living and a serious effort to save many hedgie owners some heartache. Thanks for the post, Nancy!
