I like meal worms too, for the same reasons you do with one exception. I'm not sure why but my adult G. porteri's completely and totally ignore them.I swear by super worms.
2) Good protien
3) Cut em in 1/2 for slings to scavange
4) Crush heads if you worry about em burrowing.
5) no maintenance
6) live a long time
Cant go wrong IMO, i really have yet to see a downside to them
i didn't know they couldn't dig without the first pair of legs though that makes sense. I may try that in cases where there is zero chance they are going to molt soon.You can pull off the first pair of legs on dubia also. Digging will not be possible anymore but they'll still be pretty active.
