Depending on the size of the salamander, some of those options would be too small of a food item for the salamanders to be interested in eating them.

Woodlice are readily accepted by terrestrial morphs and terrestrial adults of many species. I have excellent results with them, even though they are slow to culture and slower to harvest with out squishing them.
