Did my jumping spider lay eggs?

    I caught a little jumping spider that was sitting in the middle of a burning hot parking lot a few weeks ago. Im pretty sure it's a P. audax. It has eaten 3 times since Ive had it and made a small tent. A few days ago, it made a bigger tent in the top of its enclosure and I think it has an egg sac. How long do eggs need before they hatch? What do I do with babies? How long will she live?

    Yes cocoon, the eggs need a +/- 3 / 4 weeks to hatch. The baby's you can release, or keep a few.. She can live upp to 2 year after she's adult.. You will get more cocoon's from her...

    I also have a jumping spider that made an egg sack, 3 weeks later the eggs hatched and i have tiny babies. Most of them escaped through the vent hole of the enclosure, some of them even get into my centipede enclosure lol. A small note, she will not eat until 2-3 days after the eggs hatched. Good luck man, and congrats
