To add to my votes for virtually every insect listed, I would happily use hornworms and silkworms also but the prices are way too high to justify anyone but a single pet owner regularly feeding them, certainly for horn worms, debatable for silkworms.

How much do Silkworms and hornworms go for? Can leos eat them? I was thinking of trying them for my leopard gecko, Sol.

I'm not positive about silkworms, I've given up on them with shipping added in. The lowest I've found Hornworms is 9.99 per cup which includes either 12-16 large or about 20 small worms. The large are big enough for adult bearded dragons, the small would be good for geckos. I assume Leos can, they are a really great, nutritional food source!

In addition to what I selected I also feed four different species of isopods, bean beetles, rusty red roaches, and whitworms. Hornworms and silkworms are good feeders but I agree that they are way too expensive for more than a dozen or so mouths to feed.

I know this is a little outdated, but I just wanted to add that I keep three species of Roaches that I use as feeders aside from feeding the occasional cricket and of course Rats. I am currently trying to build my colonies to be able to not only support my collection but to provide feeders to locals as well! I keep E. Distanti (six spotted roach), Blaberus Boliviensis Hybrids (two dot/discoid hybrid) and G. Portentosa (Madagascar Hissers). I don't use the Hissers as much as feeders but keep them due to their huge size and I supply a local pet store with them as needed for pets.

When I kept rats, they went crazy for dubias. I had no idea they liked inverts to eat. While feeding the lizards, the rats would all run up to the side of their cage watching until I finally gave them some out of curiosity. They yanked the dubias out of my hand so fast all I saw was a blur!

No way! I would have never believed rats would eat dubia. Now I have something useful to do with all these extras.
