Hey guys so if you saw my previous post you would know my mexican red rump sling fell out of its container due to the container falling. The bald spot is now REALLY black and I am starting to get concerned. The container was just sprayed so it has humidity and the tarantula is warm. When should I start getting really concerned? Thank you

premolt lasts a lot longer than 3 days... but if the abdomens black than id expect a molt within a week or so, maybe sooner.

Don't spray it for humidity. Spraying the enclosure doesn't help Ts molt. That's carry over care from peeps with reptiles. Just keeps it's water dish full and leave it be.

Relax and enjoy the experience. :)
