This is true. I should've added that I only mist enough for the moisture to dissipate over the next day. Just like Vayu said, too much moisture in a s'ling container will stagnate if it sits too long. Especially if the tiniest uneaten prey remains are present. The frequency of mist of my s'lings is also based on the climate here in Colorado. The ambient humidity is less than 30% here. Usually even lower.Originally posted by Vayu Son
I hardly ever mist my spiderlings unless their abdomens are small. The moisture they require is in a large part taken from their prey. In the pill vials, misting too frequently will make the air stagnant and speed up the decaying process of mixed cricket remains. Ventilation is more important IMHO.
