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;

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

They are seriously useless. The easiest feeder insects ever, personally &#x1f923;

&#x1f602; 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.

Okay so you can get flightless fruit flies for reptiles, they dont fly as they have been genetically bred not to.
They are 2-3mm.
They are pretty easy to balance into a diet, and as they are pretty low fat, and not too high in protein, they can also be used a staple insect.

Waxworms are very high in fat, so they make a good treat insects.
So do butterworms, morioworms and mealworms.
