could this be used? and if it can be, can it be used without any other supplementation of food to the dubia colony?
i use it but in very small amounts. it does have prEformed vitamin A which if given too much can lead to organ failure and othe fatal problems. It also has a content of D in it, and given too much will lead to MBD (metabollic bone disease)
This is what Im currently using as a dry portion gut load.

3/4 cup bee pollen, 1/3 cup spirulina, 1/2 cup kelp powder, 1/4 cup Repashy CGD, 5tbs CanadianFeeders Cricket Chow, and aproximately 3/4 cup dried alfalfa, 1/4 cup organic uncooked sunflower seeds, and 1/4 cup of wheat germ.
I don't know what size colony of dubia you have but I would go broke feeding Repashy to my dubia. They eat like crazy, feeding my williamsi is one thing but 1000+ dubia? No not me.:)
as long as temps are high enough, dubias will eat almost anything!
