Has anyone had any success feeding moths to terrestrial Ts? I've have very good success with them in the past for some avics. And I'm about to start raising them to keep some for my Trinidad Chevron.

I read a site that claimed that good food for the moth pupae and moth is a mixture of honey and bran. How about honey and cricket food?

Moths are a big favorite with my ts. I often let waxworms pupate, then use the moths as feeders. The terrestrials don't seem to have too many problems catching them.

I have a bunch of curly hiars that devour moths by the dozen on a nightly basis.

Has to land sooner or later.. The aboreals I'm told can jump and catch them mid air though.

..Are you referring to Greater wax moths (Galleria mellonella) or Lesser wax moths(Achroia grisella) ?
