PostSubject: Sun Maid has an egg sack   5/21/2008, 7:19 pm

this is straight from my post on VL because I'm tired and lazy:

so I woke up a little late to get to the office today but I checked on all my kiddos as usual an discovered that Sun Maid has got an egg sack with her. mind you I don't really care much for true spiders but I caught her while doing a demolition job and decided to keep her around until someone came along that wanted her. I don't know much about keeping false widows or caring for them with egg sacks so I hope that I'm doing it right. if any of you want her & her kids....wink, wink...drop me a line and she can be yours.




yes, I finally got the species correct. thanx Mike!!!

Sweet!

By the way, are you sure she's a Latro? She looks a lot like my false widows.

Cool cool. Smile I just noticed she looked really similar, and one of my two had an eggsac a few weeks ago -- 'bout 60 babies came out when I opened it.

how did you screen off the air holes? I figure I could stick stocking material to the inside of the lid to prevent sling escape

That's exactly what I did. I took it out after a week or so and put it in its own vial with some nylon beneath the lid.

yeah, I'm not really looking forward to it. she's made a massive web structure around the egg sack so removing it is going to be a task

Sounds like a good plan. I got impatient with mine and opened it up when I could see there were slings in it -- then about sixty or so spilled out. Shocked

Now they're darkened up and just as skittish as the adults.

Nice! Just wait a couple weeks -- mine have webbed their vial into what looks like an arachno-apartment complex.

I've seen spiders minding multiple sacks before but not after one sack has burst to life. I guess it's back to the hobby lobby to get another little 1x1x2 cube

she's just a regular egg factory. I got another egg sack overnight. this brings me up to 3 from her and one from one of the new S. grossas. yep, it's safe to say I have too many false widows but at least I've got two bloodlines from two different regions/biota within the county
