Silkworm issues

Hey guys.
So my gecko isn't eating the silkworms, and I bought them from mulberry farms in a cup. They've been they're for a while and I don't want them to get to be too big, and there's lots of mess in the cup and rotting corpses and whatnot, so I figured I'd separate the living ones into a ziplock container with some air holes. I thought this could slow down they're growing and might prevent them from dying so quickly.

Do you think this is alright? How long before I should give them food again?
They're also clinging to one another in big groups. They won't try to eat each other, will they? Maybe they just need something to climb on?

Or maybe I'm doing more harm than good and should just leave them in the cup.
What do you think?

Also the bedding in their cup has begun to mold. What should I do about this? Are they no longer safe to feed?

pod cups kill silkworms what you wanna do is, Take out the live ones. Place them in a clean bin or box. (a bag will not work) and you can either put them on nothing or paper towel or even newspaper sheet. if you don't have any mulberry food left over. they will start to die off. pm me if you need any help. i breed silkworms.
