Should I leave a super worm who have just burrowed down while feeding my 1.5" gbb? My worry is that if i will find and remove it, my poor gbb's webbings will get ruined.

No.
Isn't a superworm kinda big for a 1.5" GBB? Seems like a big prey item.

Superworms tend to deliver a nasty bite when confronted by a predator. This bite can injure your tarantula and may prove to cause a serious wound. You should remove it. Your gbb can make a new web but the pain wont wait.

I've only been in the hobby a couple years, but I've never used crickets. Instead, lateralis roaches have never let me down :)
I love Blatta Lat, I don't suggest them for new keepers because they spill them and wind up with an infestation

Ah, too true. There's always the fear of that. I'm always more nervous dealing with the roaches than tarantulas lol

Yes get that out immediatly, not only can it damage your tarantula now but it can hurt it even more when it turns into a beetle. The tarantulas saftey is more important than it's webbing
