 House Gecko Hatchling

I found this little guy in the closet in my home. It has been 100+ for almost 2 months straight with no rain here, so I figured that this gecko probably wouldn’t make it in the wild.
I’m not sure how old it is, but it’s about an inch long from head to tail.
I have been feeding it fruit flies and misting the enclosure several times a day for water. There isn’t a whole lot of information out there for these geckos. I know that they are nocturnal, so that means that no UVB lighting is needed. I’m sure that it will need some kind of calcium supplement, which I have, but I have no idea how to get it on the fruit flies before feeding.
Can anyone provide any pointers?

It’s a Mediterranean house gecko. They’re invasive to the lower US, and have the same general care as regular house geckos.

It’ll grow to be a bit bigger. Not anything huge.

To give calcium supplements in an otherwise tough atmosphere, put some into a little cap or sprinkled on some jelly/fruit (apricot and bananas do well). D3 calcium/vitamins twice a week at first, then once a week when you graduate to small crix or 6 months have passed (whichever comes first)
