Would it be safe to feed just on locusts and wax worms? I know this is what they like eating but not sure about nutrition value of these and if it would be a suitable replacement

Don't know what your trying to feed but I'd vote against feeding locusts as staple and waxies certainly can't be.... Locusts have a lower calcium:phosphorus ratio and can't really be fed as staple. You should always use crickets, roaches or silkworms as staple supplemented with outer foods!

sorry i forgot to mention ive got leopard geckos!!

so you reckon that i should feed silkworms or roaches as staple, and use locusts or waxworms as outer food?

Thanks!!

That would be a much better idea than just locusts...

Word of warning Silkworms are expensive but roaches are easy to breed and a small colony would keep you going forever! There was someone selling some in the classifieds
