Yes you can feed mealworms, but they aren't very nutritious I've been told, roaches or crickets are better.

she will usually ignore food if she isnt hungry.....

but try not to overfeed on mealworms, as they can get fat!!
best to feed once a week on crickets, locust, roaches, they tend to be oportunist feeders, so will eat as soon
as there is food about,

a fat tarantulas lifespan is considerably shorter than one with a varied diet Smile

G. roseas are dump trucks, they will eat and eat and eat. Then for no apparent reason they will stop, sometimes for very long periods of time, shelby's hasn't eaten since feb, and I have one that has yet to eat in my care, which has been almost 3 months now. You only need to feed them once a week like akasha said.
