Given time... most leos should probably switch over to mealies without too much problem. Just give it a few days... eventually most will get hungry enough to take whatever moves...just make sure to change the mealies daily to keep ones in there that will move around looking for something to crawl under. A couple of days isn't going to hurt a healthy leo while you wait for him/her to eat what you put in there. Mine went on a week hunger strike when I switched em... but finally ate for me and have been on mealies and superworms ever since. I even start my hatchlings on mealies...and they're doing great...
