Hi, I'll be getting a package of 3 slings in a few days. i have purchased some deli cups and small food containers as enclosures, and i was wondering how big of drill holes i should make.

the slings are as follows
3/4" B.Smithi
3/4" A.Hentzi
1/2" OBT

The holes should be smaller in diameter than the diameter of the spider's carapace.

The holes shouldnt be big enough to allow the spider OR the food items to escape.
You might want to use some fine netting and elastic band.

You really shouldn't need to DRILL holes in deli cups. :?

I've always done just fine using a thumbtack/pushpin to poke many small holes in the top, and maybe the sides if need be. Works like a charm.
