Is the spot darkened, if she's still eating the it shouldn't be pre-molt

A bald spot just means that they have been kicking hairs, regardless of whether you have seen it doing it or not. Watch for that bald spot to turn very dark and then you have an impending molt. There are several signs of premolt, such as laying down a molt mat of thick web. A quick advanced search of "premolt" "signs" should yield you a whole slew of them.:D The link in my signature can also get you to information on it, as well as most commonly asked questions.
