Toad food?

d9, just curious, when the weather gets better can you catch your own bugs outside? Figured they'd be free, and your toads could get some variety too. Is this ok with toads or do you have to stick with store-bought crickets?

Well, i have actually been catching earthworms since I got them. I still do, I just started feeding them crickets. They get some variety in.

I suppose it would be okay depending on the conditions where you get em,

I would be having an indoor cat all its life and sundenly let one out and say it catchesa maouse ar a bird or something chances are the cat may pick up something from it.

Also alot of parasites could enter the toads area this way aswell.

I usually buy crickets and supreworms from the shop, but I do however collect common house flys with a honey trap.

Cmac, those are good reasons. I just thought it would be cool to get free food, and to watch them eat different bugs. Sure wouldnt want to make the toads sick from that though.

I wash them all of before putting them in, but that wont stop it totally of course.
