Your temperature gradient is perfect. This is the time of year that adult females will seek cooler temperatures as part of the breeding cycle. Even if you don't plan on breeding her she is still experiencing natural internal cycling. If your other gecko is a male she may be smelling him and reacting to that too. You may also notice a lessened appetite too as part of the cooler ambient temps, which is also very normal.

When I bred geckos and had a few hundred, I mainly fed crickets to my collection. Many others preferred feeding their geckos mealworms, but that didn't work well for me. In the past few years, various types of roaches can be easily bred/reproduced thus keeping your food costs down from having to buy crickets and/or mealworms. I have to be honest that I'm not too familiar with silk or horn worms.
