Premolt???
She's been refusing food lately and she's kicked some hair off but she's still very active during the night, wandering all over the place and pretending to be an arboreal. Is she in premolt?
Looks more like it's just been kicking a lot of hairs to me. Usually the abdomen is darker when it's in premolt.
 
Based on that bald spot, I'd say not yet. When it turns dark, you'll know it is in premolt.

That behavior does sound a little weird though.
 
@Trenor alright. She has been refusing food and the superworms usually burrow the second they have freedom, so should I try feeding her again?
 
Climbing the walls is usually a sign of stress with a terrestrial, especially if she's kicking a lot of hairs. Can you think of anything that could be causing it?

I usually struggle to feed superworms to anything that wont grab it straight out the tongs, maybe try a cricket or roach if you can get them.
 
@SpaceM Climbing can be a sign of stress. I don't run AC in my pet room and it gets pretty warm at times. A number of my terresterals will climb during the day while it's hot. Ts tend to gravitate towards heat and the top of the enclosure is usually the warmest spot. When it cools off in the evening they move back down as the over all tank temp evens out.
 
@Trenor She kinda stays in one place the whole day and starts wandering when it gets dark. I live in Cali so it is insanely hot these days, even with AC.
