If you can possibly keep her, do. If she's not up to snuff yet, she probably wouldn't fare well if you let her go again.

Any chance of other flying bugs? Moths or anything?

Beyond that, you can mail order fly pupae. I've only done it once or twice, and it's kind of awkward and expensive, but it would give you something to feed her. You can keep them in the fridge to slow the hatching, and take out a few at a time to put in the cage. As I recall, they tended to hatch out sooner than I wanted anyway, even in the fridge. But at least it's something. This is one place to get them:

There are probably others as well.

Have you tried large fruit flies? They're a pain and possibly too small to interest her, but who knows.

Good luck with her, and hang in there.
