    So yesterday I found a wolf spider carrying an egg sac. I have her in a mason jar with a mesh lid. I'm keeping the sac in a second jar until the slings are big enough to transfer. There are roughly 30 slings and they seem to prefer the sac over the substrate. The female is taking crickets so I'm not worried about her but when will the slings start feeding and will they scavenge dissected crickets?

    yes they will scavenge. What I do is just mush up one big waxworm so they can all feed on it and an hour later they all have big yellow tummies :p
