Phoenix Worms and D3?

Sorry in advance if this is in the wrong section, I couldn't decide where it should go.

I've recently discovered that my gecko LOVES phoenix worms. Which is great imo due to their almost perfect Ca:p ratio, cleanliness, and ease of storage. What bothers me, though, is that once all that calcium gets eaten, what now? I'm planning to have either a mixture of bugs at every feeding or a rotating schedule. All the other bugs will be dusted with calcium with D3, is this going to be enough D3 to work through all that calcium or should I get a UV bulb to help out? Or maybe a multivitamin with D3 in it (though I can't seem to find one)?

They don't need much D3 since they're nocturnal and I don't think the issue is the more calcium it takes in, the more D3 it requires. Just keep up your supplementation schedule and don't worry about it, in my opinion.
