Yes, I'm sure they do in the wild all the time. But there is a risk that the spider may have absorbed household pesticides so I wouldn't recommend it.
If you can get wingless fruit flies try them, they are pretty easy to cultivate if you would like to try live foods.

I'm partial l to frozen foods myself as treats. Try some bloodworms or mysis shrimp, they will be a lot safer.

I'm not sure if I'd feed it a grand dad long leg. They carry some of the most venomous poison in them. The only reason you can handle them without getting ill is because they have no way to really "eject" the venom into you. Hope this helps.

it may also make your betta sick if the bug has been sprayed with pesticides.
