General Spider Care

Housing

For housing its best to choose an enclosure that fits your tarantula well. For terrestrial spiders something short and wide, and arboreal spiders something tall and narrow. Usually smaller is better than larger when choosing between two sizes. Use Eco Earth coco coir or other organic bedding like potting soil mixed with clay or sand. You can also use sphagnum moss and leaf litter to decorate.

Water

Spiders get most of the water they need from they prey they consume , but they will also drink from shallow water dishes. For small slings use thin water bottle cap sized dishes , moving up to 5oz sized bowls for adults.

Food

Spiders will eat almost anything they can over power. Crickets , roaches, meal worms, super worms , you name it. I feed my tarantulas one to two prey items the size of their abdomen about once a week. You will see certain species have faster or slower metabolisms. Adjust accordingly if your spider starts to get chunky. They can often go long periods without eating as well which is completely normal. Pick out or remove any food that has been eaten or not after about 24 hours.

Molting

As your tarantula grows it will molt out of its old skin. They do this by flipping on their back and pushing out of the old exoskeleton. It's important to leave the tarantula alone during this period which may take many hours. Pause and resume feeding about 1 week later after it has hardened up.

Tools

There are a variety of tools to keep on hand but the most important tend to be a pair of long hemostats (tweezers) usually around 10''. I also like to keep an empty deli-cup around in case I ever need it. A spray bottle can also be used to help more tropical species, but be aware over -spraying can cause some issues. It's best to keep the substrate semi-damp rather than spraying a lot.
