Deinopis egg sac 2.
Ogre faced web casting spider pumped out another juicy egg sac the other day, she was putting the final touches on when I took this.
My army is almost complete..
Awesome!!! do you know how long they take to come out? I have a Deinopis egg-sac that she laid before she died, but it's been like over a month and still nothing... might be unfertilized?
 
@Aline you may have to slit the egg sac open, the mother usually does this not exactly sure how to tell when to do it but.
 
@Rhino1 Oh shoot, if I do it too early do I risk killing them? Do you have an idea how long are they supposed to take to hatch? thanks!
 
@Aline it is just a matter of using a razor to gently make a slit in that outer shell, keep the humidity fairly constant. From old photos on our laptop I worked out they should take around a month before mum chews a hole in it, I'd imagine temperature and humidity will affect hatch times.
Spiderlings generally, will eventually get out on their own but if your worried you can put a small slit in the outside layer to help things along.
At least you could have a peek and see if they are infertile
 
I've found these take around 2.5 to 3 months to hatch, hatching often seems to occur after a good misting. I mist mine every couple of days or so and the slings will make a hole themselves to hatch out from.
