Mosquito Eggs and Maggots

Can Betta's eat these? I am always finding ME around the yard in buckets and such that have been filled with water from the rain. And it has been getting warmer I can set up somthing far away from the house that flys might be attracted to. Would these be okay to give to my Betta? Right now they live of a mixture of Betta-Min, FD Blood Worms, and occaisonally Pellets.

I don't know about the larvae, but I think mosquito eggs are one hell of a good snack for your betta.

I would be scared of the possible diseases or whatnot. Risk comes with live foods, right? But what risks, exactly?

Mosquito larvae is a betta's favorite. The only downside is that you might create a very picky fish!

I'm quite sure they could eat them, just keep in mind that there could be parasites, diseases, and pesticides when you're dealing with live food.
