Best Answer

Most people say hamsters cannot eat bugs. But they are wrong! Hamsters are omnivores. They will eat plant and meat material.

Anyways, wild hamsters will eat crickets, small worms, maggots, and other soft invertebrates. However, domestic hamster may dislike bugs. You wouldn't want a half-eaten worm in the cage! It would rot and the smell would spread quickly! Feed domestic hamsters hamster food and the wild ones will eat their worms!

No, hamsters are omnivores. You can fees them hamster food. You could also feed it apples, lettuce, carrots, spinach, bananas, blackberries, cherries, blueberries, cantaloupe, seedless grapes, cranberries, mangoes, melons, peaches, plums, raspberries, raspberries leaves (helpful for diarrhea), strawberries, asparagus, bean sprouts, bok choy, Broccoli, Cabbage (Limited amounts), Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Chard, Chestnuts, Chickweed, Chicory, Clover, Corn on the Cob, Cucumbers, Dandelion Leaves, Endive, Green Beans, Kale, Parsnips, Peas, Radicchio, Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Sweet bell Peppers, Swiss Chard, Turnip, Water Chestnuts, Water Cress, and Zucchini.
