You're not feeding mealworms as a staple diet are you? It's highly recommend not to do that because of their fat content, tougher exoskeleton and the fact they are very hard to gut load.
Crickets or Roaches are the best staple in my opinion with mealworms, butterworms, silk worms, hornworms and Phoenix worms providing much needed variety in your geckos diet I would stay away from wax worms though, simply unneeded.
As for your question, to get my geckos to eat mealworms from I dish I hold the worm with tweezers in front of them, lead them to the dish, drop the worm in the dish and them they eat it in the dish. You will have to do this a couple days probably for your gecko to get the hang of it."When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too"Post Thanks / Like - 0 Thanks, 1 LikesElizabeth Freer liked this post

Try putting about 10 in the bowl. The movement of the group should stimulate her. Also, put a small piece of carrot in the bowl that will stimulate the mealworms and get them moving more.
I use mealworms as a staple but I do feed crickets every weekend.

And she doesn't go in her hides very much she just lays in the corner of the tank.
I find this weird because dont they like to stay in their hides all day?

It is a theremometer that has a dial.
I have a cool side hide and a warm side the warm moist is really big so I'm only going to put it in when. She sheds

The moist hide not only aids in shed but also provides a place with higher humidity and helps hydrate your Leo. It really is best to have it in there all the time. Perhaps buying or making a smaller one?"When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too"
