The ones that feed on privet would be a definite no. Any that have been raised on bramble may be ok if they're non-toxic and the bramble is from a totally pesticide-free area to prevent bio-accumulation.

You'd still have to worry about the spines on them etc. Stick insects are so thin that there wouldn't be much real goodness in them. Given that people will buy stick insects, it would probably be better for your lizard if you sell them cheaply and buy a box of locusts to feed it instead, or look to trade them for cockroaches etc...

not saying your wrong andy, but he doesnt have a dragon:) dont know if it depends on the species, but i thought i would just point it out:) sorry if i sounded a bit rude:)
Oops didn't notice that he hadn't said what lizard it was for!!

I assume the same would apply for all insectivorious lizards though, unless you happened to have a specialised stick insect-eating species...

That tends to be the larger species doesn't it? It's been years since I had stick insects though...

If it is the larger species, it would be a pretty expensive way to feed a generic, non-denominational lizard!!
