when they are smaller. it should make up most of their diet. its great exercise for them to chase them down. if you're starting out with a baby then you will probly need crickets. if you really dont want to do things with them. try some hissing roaches those things are awesome. just start a colony of them and feed them the smaller ones.
:I have no problem with rodents, kingmealworms or fruits & vegetables, I just hate crickets and have not goten any herps that require them in their diet. :So does a b&w require them?? :Jack
