Probably difference in temperatures or humidity. I’m sure dieting has nothing to do with it.

That is actually unusual. Mine usually keep alive for a couple of days unless they are eaten. But I would have to say that maybe the gecko is attacking them but maybe not eating them?

And she said dieing, not dieting Computer.

What size were they when you got them? Have you had them in another enclosure for a while?
