Please go over your surface basking temps and uvb brand and bulb - where it is placed for the tank-- how old? What are you feeding? How are you cleaning the tank ? You need a good disinfectant like F10

Hello,

What type of feed/gutload are you feeding the insects prior to giving them to her?
Do you know what the levels are of the pinworms on the test by chance?
What type of substrate do you use, a solid substrate or a loose substrate? It isn't unusual for
them to have low levels of pinworms on fecal exams, as part of their normal gut flora. You
mentioned that she isn't showing any signs of illness right now & isn't suffering from weight loss?
