Crustaceans

As we know many fish eat crustaceans such as crabs, cray fish, shrimp ect. But a pillbug/rolleypolly is also a crustacean can you feed these bugs to your fish?
This is the crustacean I'm talking about common in Virginia and though out most of the us I beleive.

I think up here they are called potato bugs.. look the same, and I wouldn't feed them to my fish.. they can ingest pesticides, herbicides and introduce other disease to the tank.
