Damp substrate? If so let it dry out or change it for dry.

PS Photo's always help :)

Overly moist substrate or not, it will take her a while (days or even weeks) to get used to her new surroundings.

Please have a read through the stickies at the top of the "Tarantula Q's and A's" and give yourself a leg up. There is LOTS of good info there for new keepers such as yourself.

ok thank u, get straight to it i dont want her getting upset
Just one more thing, they didn't recommend you buy bug gel for her water dish did they? If they did remove the bug gel straight away and replace it with nice clean fresh water.
