Default My Mediterranean gecko isn't eating

Hi I live in Hong Kong (yes the virus is intense) and I own a Mediterranean gecko, for a few weeks it lived behind my overheating made in china labtop and now we finally gave it a home, it drinks water off the walls instead of the bowl, it loves to climb our wooden decorations inside it's enclosure but it won't eat. It hasn't eaten in days, I only saw it took a dump one time on the glass and I hoped that maybe it ate one of the insects , yet all the insects where still there, I really wanna feed Stalin, if I don't I'm worried he'll die. In Hong Kong you can only buy crickets and mealworms, no fruit flies.

Leave some over rip fruit like banana near an open window, or out on a window ledge, and the fruit flies will come to you. You may get soldier flies laying eggs there too. Or use a light trap to catch small moths at night. However be safe and only have the window open if it is safe to do so.
