I alternate days with calcium and a multivitamin. That seems to work well for my dragon. That way, she's getting an even amount of both. Too much calcium can cause a painful-to-pass and chalky urate, but you don't want to do less than three days a week.
You could get liquid calcium and syringe feed it to him, but I think you would need to get that from the vet. Another thing you could try, if he is preferring bugs, is putting calcium on some greens and feeding the greens to his feeder insects. Feed the nutrients to the feeders, and he will get them as well.
ok let me clear this up. I started with crickets, he loved em. then moved to dubias, loved those too. then started giving suoerworms for treats. well he started refusing everything but suoerworms. I don't want him eating supers as a staple, so I'm refusing him supers right now. he's not wanting any other feeder besides supers and has never really liked his greens. he picks a little at them but that's it. so he's not refusing everything, but I'm working him off his supers
Okay thanks for the clarification. I'm still wondering if there's something else going on aside from pickiness. So how long has it been since this all started? I ask because he may need to see a vet or have a fecal done to test for parasites.
