Advertisement Hi. I have a jumping spider, I'm pretty sure he/she is a phidippus audax. She went inside that little house 8 days ago and I can see some web hammock in the doorway. Could she be laying eggs in there? Or perhaps molting? I had fed her 3 house flies over the previous week. (Just after I discovered she'd moved in to our patio) . I just love watching her hunt and she keeps an eye on me too. This is my first spider friend and I am learning as much as I can, but I can' seem to find the answer for how long they stay in their hammock web while molting. I've read that it can be anywhere from 1 week to 1 month. That's a pretty big range. Thanks for any info I can get.
