Hey bug farmers :)
I've been asking myself what kind of herbs can i feed my insects? Locusts, Crickets, Mealworms and Superworms in particular.
For example, do they tolerate essential oils and will they even eat it? Like Mint, lavender or rosemary? There is also alot of stinging nettle in my garden and humans can eat it but i am not sure what happens if i feed that to the insects? Do they get damaged by that poison in the little stingers or wont they be harmed? And what about oxalic acids? If i feed them regulary with fresh green that has a bit more oxalic acids like rocket(i think thats thge english name), will the insect store that inside the body? Or can i just eat it without thinking about that?
