Can I feed them bugs from my backyard?

I have seen a few "plant hoppers" (small leaf looking bugs) around my backyard. Is it safe to feed these to my frog?

Should be fine if you can be sure there are no insecticides in or around your garden.

Thanks! I was just worried about the powder on the bugs wing and whether it was poisonous :?. But I guess it should be fine :) . Now I can feed them their first flying insect! :D
