From my experience with different colonies I'd recommend to try again next year, even with stuff the absolutely dislike.
Once there'll be more members they'll be hungrier and will accept any kind of food more easily.

My C. Barbaricus periodically consume:
  • Dubia Roaches
  • Crickets
  • Protein Jelly
  • Spiders (occasionally, but they love them)
But they're not huge fans of mealworms.
Keeping the following colonies:
  • [2x] Camponotus Barbaricus
  • [2x] Lasius Flavus

I think you’re right. I will definitely try everything again next year. I still can’t bring myself to have roaches haha. I plan to purchase some wingless fruit flies next year and protein jelly. I have super worms but they aren’t interested in anyway I try preparing them.
