The only purpose washing these bugs would prove would be to drown them. It is very dangerous to bring in bugs from outside as they most likely have been exposed to fertilizers. Also, earthworms are chock full of bacteria which would make your leo sick if they did even decide to eat them. Please stick with the regular available diets: crickets, mealworms, super worms, waxworms, silk worms... etc.

:I was wondering if anyone tryed some alternative food, maybe from the garden? (Maybe angleworm, earthworm, or some beetles?)
:What could be wrong by doing this? (Offcourse I would wash them)
