Q. Can I feed mealworms to my pet gecko on Pesach?
A. Mealworms are living creatures which are not chametz and can be fed to geckos as-is. However, they are commonly sold in a bed of wheat flakes or oatmeal, which are chametz and may not be owned or used on Pesach. Accordingly, it is typically not realistic to use mealworms on Pesach. [Some have had success feeding crickets to their geckos for Pesach.]
