I caught a jumping spider two weeks ago and it won't eat. First, I threw in a moth but it wasn't interested.

I tried the smallest crickets I could find (about the same size as the slider), and it wouldn't eat it, either.

Are wingless fruit flies too small? The spider is about the size of a small cricket. Any other options?


Thanks!

Some jumping spiders are highly specialized... some in flies, some in ants, some in other spiders. Identify the species, research its habits and life history, then go from there.
