Question Feeding Bait Shop Earthworms to Axolotls?

I was wondering what would be better to feed to my Axolotls... earthworms from a bait shop, or dug up from the yard?

Thanks in advance!

Either is fine as long as they come from a pesticide/fertilizer free area. The biggest thing is cost. Why fuss with traffic and drive out to the bait shop to pay for worms when you can just dig them up for free?

The only thing I am worried about is that there are farmer's fields all around my yard, and I'm not sure if they use any chemicals that would be dangerous to them...
