Good luck. :)
thanks. If she does lay.

I need some info on the egg sac. When do I pull the egg sac? And if I do incubate them. What should I do with them after the incubator? do I put them all together in ben or separate them. After the incubator. And what temperature do they need to be on? I'm sorry I'm new at this. been trying to find info about them

thank you.

I pull the eggsack at 28 days. They should be eggs with leggs then. I keep them in the incubator at 82 degrees until they molt to 2nd instar. At that point I separate them a few days afterwards before they start cannibalizing one another.

Whats the best way to keep the temperature at 82 ? .. heat lap or heat mat .. Florida's a little cold rn
I don't want to cook them..

sorry for being late to this thread, I have been away on business.
Everything that @Arachnoclown says is the best advice anyone can give. :)

It's no problem . I have a question tho . What can I use or not use to get 82 degrees for the incubator
being in the UK, 82° is usually only ever achieved through heating (I have used polystyrene boxes with a small heat mat unserneath and a thermostat with success) or I believe you can get exoterra incubators where you set the temp and they do it for you either chilling or heating but you may want to check that as I have never used one and I have seen some reviews that say they are not that accurate.

I heat my entire tarantula room with a thermostatic space heater. The other spiders dont mind the increase while I have the incubators.
