If you are refering to those little black kind of hairy bugs they actually turn into a flying beetle, kind of look like a smaller version of the darkling beetle. They do fly though and I've heard they also bite but never witnessed this myself. Also I was told not to feed them to any herps because althought they are not deadly they have little hairs on them that can irritate a lizards throat.

So, I've never intentionally fed them to any of my herps but I do believe a dragon or two has got one on occasion by accident and although no harm has come of it, who knows what it feels like in their throat.
