    Can i feed this insect?

    i found this insect on the wall of my house. actually, i found 2. one was on my leg so i squished it and some sorta blood came out.
    it walks almost like a centipede. the side to side squiggly walk, it walks really fast.
    here's a picture i kinda drew(not exact) of how it looks like, it does have that tail looking thing on the back. its in my freezer right now, i heard if you put a bug in a freezer, it'll hybernate and then i can place it in the trap

    i think it bit me too, i'm not sure.


    edit: it has like 4 tails thingy, and i think it died. 5 minute in the freezer, it curled up abit and wont walk anymore the tentacle is moving though

    I feed my VFTs silverfish all the time. No problem. A minute and half to two minutes in the freezer is usually enough.

    To feed your VFT dead insects just put the bug in the trap and trigger the trap. After the trap closes very gently squeeze the trap or tap it. Repeat a couple times.
