Long term effects of feeding bean beatles

Wanted to hear from those (if any) who feed exclusively (or majority of the time) bean beatles and how long you have been feeding these. My concern is long term effects of the shells causing impaction or other digestive tract problems.

I've had problems with feeding bean beetles to Ph. bicolor. One of my females repeatedly had a rectal prolaps, only after feeding bean beetles. Now of course this is not scientific evidence but it did scare me off a little and I stopped feeding bean beetles altogether. No prolapses since.
