Chocolate Chip Starfish eating insects

My tank is now about 12 weeks old and I have had a Chocolate Chip Starfish for about 2 weeks. I have a little problem with asian lady beetles in my basement. I don't get too many but at the start of the winter I see them. I now get them in my 120 gallon SW tank and my starfish crawls over them and eats them. Should I try to scoop them out before the starfish gets to them or is it ok? Right now he has two of them with his stomach fully out. I have seen this about 3 times now.

It`s not what they get in nature. I`d try to stick with natural items.
