I caught her a little while ago, about three days ago.

after three days I finally found her an Earwig, she attacked it, killed it, and started eating it, she spent about 4hours just holding onto it, hanging from her enclosure.
I decided to go to sleep, turned her light off in her cage and the room, and went to sleep.

When I woke up, I went to check on her, she was hanging from her enclosure - but she dropped her food and now wont touch it.
I'm really worried if she's going to starve herself?

Was it because I didnt leave a light on? Or is it just that she might of dropped it and lost interest?.. I don't know

I'm new to spiders and this is my first one.
Can someone help me?

Shes prolly full my man. Maybe, she decided she didn't like the taste. Try a different bug tomorrow night. I like flies near the porch light.
I've seen my jumper do this before with a dubia.

Yeah find something a bit more soft bodied for prey items.
