For a week or two, my Avic avic will web heavily in the upper rear portion of her enclosure, eventually closing her self in completely. During this time, she isn't eating. Normally, through a day, I find her in various spots in her enclosure but once she closes herself in, that's where she stays. It's usually several weeks before she molts. I give her 7 to 10 days to let her fangs harden and offer a cricket which is accepted with great enthusiasm. A few days after that, she tears down all the webbing and resumes what I call her normal activities. Physically, I don't see any signs of impending molt but let her behavior tell me what's going on. Hope that helps and hope you enjoy your new fuzzy friend.
