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.
Herps are like pringles, you can't stop at just one.
