Is Black Solider Fly Larvae a good constant feeder?

Although they are highly nutritious we do not recommend feeding them as a constant feeder for your reptiles. We look at  them more as a treat. The reasoning behind this is NO feeder is a good constant. It is very important that our pets receive different food options as the continue to grow. Different insects offer different nutritional values. So it is good to mix things up to make sure they are getting all the different nutrients  that other insects also offer. To much of anything is a bad thing.
