    Ok so are stick bugs good for bearded dragons? Some people have told me that and I wasn't sure

    They can be a nice snack but I don't think they'd be a viable stable. They're also expensive feeders

    Ok hold on here a minute! Some species of stick insect are capable of spraying an acid like substance and it can blind an attacker. Some will also bleed a foul smelling substance from the joints in their legs.
    They are not all defenseless!

    Are you talking about going outside and catching all these insects you are asking about?

    No I'm not going to feed any insects from outside to my beardie. I order them or I go to a pet store

    Silkworms are an excellent feeder - hands down. Danged if I can remember the name but they contain a chemical that helps calcium absorb and they are low in chitin, high protein decent in fat too. But remember variety is always best

    I know its hard and some feeders are easier to breed them others.
