    Spiders aren't my fortay as well. I do find them very interesting. Just don't want them in my house.

    LOl thanks everyone:) Beleive it or not I used to dislike spiders too haha.
    They don't require much, I keep them in jars whith some peat moss for substrate although they don't really need it.I add some ventilation holes to the lid. I have some sticks propped up in there for them to web on, I mist the jars 1 or 2 times a week. I only feed them the large prey items on occasion. I feed them smaller roaches, crickets and mealies 2 to 3 a week.
    I've had them for well over a year now. They have produced tons of babies for me lol.

    Nice! I bred widows for a little while myself. I'm definitely doing it again when it warms up. I assume these are Latrodectus mactans?
