Safe to put isopods in?

I collected some wild isopods from an area in which I don't know contains pesticides.
These new wild ones have multiplied so wildly out of control! I have had them in my tote for about a month.
Do you think it's safe to move them from the tote to the tank, or should I wait longer?

So the area contains pesticides? If so, do not put the isopods in. If you don’t know, you could wait for them to have a few generations, than put them in the tank. If you see any darkish blue isopods, do not put them in either

Okay, thanks both! :)
I will wait another month.
