We had a lot issues getting Sweet Pea to eat freeze dried and dead bugs. I finally bought 5 small crickets and although she couldn't catch them, when I caught one with tweezers and held it under her nose, she gobbled it up. She started smelling in the air for more and ate several more.

I went ahead and bought a box of 24 small-medium crickets and she has eaten a few every day since. I heard you can pull off the crickets legs so the hedgie can catch them, but I don't want to torture them.

Meal worms are not available in our area right now, but I will try them when they are.

I am glad she is finally getting so insects.
