Sorry love, but garters, ribbons, dekay's and the like do not eat insects. Even if they did... they would not have the means to digest them and they would poop them out looking exactly the same as they went in. I feed my dekay's and red bellies small worm or nightcrawler pieces. Make sure you are not using red wrigglers, as these nasty little red ringed worms secrete a nasty orange liquid that has shown to be toxic. You can't miss em, they are reddish in color and have distinct light colored rings.. and when you poke them there will be orange goo that smells liek earwax all over the place. If they won't eat the worm pieces... get yourself a pet slug (or freeze one) for the winter and use it to scent the worm peices with... it works everytime :D

you could also collect a whole bunch of slugs and freeze them. You can cut up pieces of any that are too large for your snake to eat.
