    I was down to 7 small slings.

    Sort of, yes. It takes so little time to feed & care for slings that, it was taking more time getting sorted or clearing up. Plus more mealworms get used with more than 7 slings & thus fewer get wasted.

    How can I get the best temp and humidity for my T

    First thing to do, is to forget the term "humidity." Keep a water container in the enclosure & moisten a small area of the substrate on rotation. Brachypelma are desert species & do not need much moisture at all. But always keep a small area of the substrate lightly moist & then allow it to...

    I was down to 7 small slings.

    Having rehoused a few of my slings over the past couple of months into larger enclosures. I was down to just 7 small slings & then I spotted an advert on preowned yesterday evening. Someone very local to me was selling 2 X T albopilosus, (Nigerian,) slings. 1 X Lasiodora striatipes sling 1 X...

    Bean Weevil for slings

    Bean Weevil for slings

    I brought a small culture of bean weevils from ebay earlier this year, they took a while to get going. Certainly a lot longer than I had expected. But I now have three tubs of them & really need to move a couple of them on. I mainly use bean weevils with small mantids, jumping spiders etc.

    Resin water dishes.

    That is a great idea. I am generally using old lids, of differing sizes. And with some I have more than one water dish in the enclosure, as they like to move them about, or bury them.

    Resin water dishes.

    How do others find these? I have several from different brands & of different sizes & none of them seem to be capable of holding water, not for even a few hours. I stopped using these commercial dishes for this reason & now have a small collection of them in a carrier bag. These I mainly...
