so my leopard gecko is about 3 years old now and has never ate anything but crickets. Even as a baby he wouldn't eat meal worms. As i am going off to college I'm trying to get him to eat them so it'll be easier for my family to care for him. Problem is everytime he sees it he looks at it and walks away. is there anyway i can get him to eat mealworms

Welcome to the forum! You may have to wait him out a little bit unfortunately. Have you considered trying dubia roaches or other insects?

You could try super worms. They move around more than mealworms. I wasn't able to get my kids to eat things they didn't want to when they were young, and it didn't work with my geckos either!
