What did you buy? If you bought BSFL they can be put in the fridge on door to make them go dormant so they dont turn into the fly itself - they also will last on the counter for about 2 weeks as well before going into the fly--- what is the dragon eating?

I dunno anymore
I bought supers from critter depot
500 of them & all the sudden he doesnt want them.
Then I got some dubias & he will not eat them.
I'm half tempted to give up

Oh my dont do that!! It is possible hes tired of them if hes been eating them for awhile- Mine has slowed down on them as well but I only bought like 50 of them (the supers) ---- your roaches will last a long time--- put them in a tote or 10 gallon aquarium and feed them dubia food and carrots for hydration --- I have had mine for quite awhile and they are doing fine growing of course -- are we talking about 2 dragons or one? It is brumation season so the older one wont be eating now or not much anyway --- but Blaze has slowed down on the supers -- hes 4 months old---

Hi there, it may just be the time of year or he may be over-fed. Can you post pics of him + his set up ? Superworms are VERY easy to care for. Just get a medium sized plastic storage container [ the size of a large boot box or sweater box] dump in a container of oatmeal or wheat bran and cut up a sweet potato or large carrot in to a few big chunks. They will live at room temp. like that for months. Don't put supers in the fridge though or put a lid on the container.
