I have a generous amount of woodlice in my backyard. I have a young pixie that I know would eat them, however would you recommend this?
I keep thinking that the bugs will have parasites or something, or am I just being a hypochondriac?

I wouldn't feed them to your frogs though I bet there might be some way of cleaning them like having them bread a couple times in a box. I could be totally off though because I do not know one thing about cleaning or feeding insects. I always buy them at my local pet store.

I know some people that do field sweep for bugs but only from certain areas to avoid pestacides.
I would not feed them directly to MY frogs but I have tons of woodlice and srpingtails being cultured.
best thing to do is to round up as many as you can, and throw them into a container with an organic substrate in the bottom( coco fiber and a few moist leaves works well ). get them going well and pull some small ones out to start new cultures. I would say that after a few months of the collected ones being established I would not have a prpblem feeding them off.
all my isopods seem to love cucumber the most.
there are also plenty of people culturing larger sized sowbugs that pixies would love.
