Live insects are part of their regular diet in the wild. If you haven't tried to give your gliders anything live yet you are missing out on half the fun. Grab a moth a small normal sized moth. hold it by it's wings and let your girls get a good look at it. get it near them, they will devour it. be sure you have someone waiting with another one nearby for the second girl, or you will have a fight on your hands for the possesion of the moth, Once you get them eating the moths.. the crickets and the meal worms will be easy. If you use a nestbox set the cricket inside of it while they are awake. the meal worms they will learn to come out to the cage for. Keep us posted and let us know how things work out. BTW I am glad to see you have been LURKING for awhile but you may come out of the woodwork and throw your own .02 worth in. the more H.O.E (hands on Experienced)users we have helping, the more options people have. Welcome aboard and I hope we hear from you more often.. What are your gliders names and how old are they?
