Free live food for bettas

Do any of you sometimes find a fruit fly in your house and conveniently feed it to your betta or see a little fly just happen to fly in your fish's tank and your betta eats it. Seems like this would be a great source of supplemental nutrition (in addition to pellets) or should we not feed fruit flies that come into the house to due to fruits having possible pesticides although we eat the fruit and the fruit fly is alive so.....what do you think?

someone a day or two ago posted about betta bugs- wingless fruitflies. so i assume regular ones would be fine.

I think the ones you can get from petstores are a better bet, because you don't know if the fruit flies in your home have come into contact with pesticides or anything else that may harm your betta...

Well, Jupiter, Pet Store hold there Bettas in a little 1/8 of a gallon jar with the same water for the longest time. If they have the heart to do that, They would have the heart to douse betta treats in poison.
