    I think I have finally found a use for these destructive bugs - my gals love them!! I catch them in a jar, pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours (so they don't quickly fly off) and then give them to the gals. Talk about food fight!! [​IMG] I assume they are safe to eat?? Our land hasn't had any pesticide application in probably 15 years, so they shouldn't be toxic.
    Comments anyone?? Sue

    They're fine for them to eat.
