    When they get relay dark, i always open the cocoon a little bit.. Just to help them, i now they can do it there self. But in the wild the female also helps a bit..

    Its awesome to see, if the cocoon is dark enough. And you open it, they all come running out. Super cool to see :)

    Alright everyone, I am at six sacs total, three Per species. My first hasselti sac is becoming darker, and I want to remove it, but am not sure the best way to do it. The sac has a slight dark coloration, but isnt 100% dark. How do you all recommend getting the sac out? @Widowman10 @Joogvanhedel?

    Haha, yes thats a secure job :p I like to use a thin stick and my tweezers. Twist the litle / thin stick around the cocoon, and try to get a hold of the webbing around it. Sometimes you can just pull the cocoon out, sometimes you have a litlebit more trouble :)

    I caught 20 geometricus the other day around the house. Luckily I have someone who wants them.

    Another question: Is there a specific way I should keep the sac in the isolation container? I was planning on just using a small deli cup with some paper towel for climbing when they hatch.

    I wouldn't mind one or two as well, we don't have that species over here.

    Okay! Maybe I shouldn’t have houses them all together to thin the numbers out. Send me a message on here to remind me.
