My friend is a breeder of geckos, dragons, and other such lizards. He decided for a gift to set me up for one (a leopard gecko) and mail me one in the near future. Since he's a breeder, I've been asking him all these odd questions. Some of which he couldn't answer and instead told me to ask on a forum. Here I am. Anyway, aside from feeding the gecko mealworms and other petstore goodies, I was wondering if I could feed him/her outdoor bugs with use of a bug net. Before you tell me, "No! They may be poisoned insects due to pestisides" I'll tell you that I don't spray the insects around my house, and there is about 5 miles of woods beyond the backyard as well that I could go hunting in for insects. If feeding outside wild bugs to the gecko is possible. Which ones would be safe? And, more specifically, can I feed the gecko slugs or J.Beatles? Thank you for any advice or replies.
