Enclosure question for a 0.5cm spiderling

I have one 0.5cm (ca 1/4'') Pseudhapalopus sp blue spiderling arriving next week. I'm making my own enclosure for it and I'm unsure about how small exactly the ventilation holes need to be? 2mm? Anything larger than that and it can crawl out through them?

Appreciate your feedback.

if the holes are big enough for the carapace it fit through, they're too big.

So long as they're not as wide as the carapace it should be okay

Hi
Here is mine when I originally got them.

Its a 1oz sauce pot(diameter 3cm)
for ventilation I used rotary tool with 0.5mm drill bit but you can use small heated needle to melt holes too

Hi
You don't as much holes as I have there.I did them so many as it was very easy with the rotary tool.
Few on the side and few on the lid will be enough.
Regards Konstantin
