ok im in southeast ohio, and today was doing some insulating in my creepy crappy basement, and came across some spiders, and a silverfish lookin guy....the one spiders look like some kinda wolf spider, and the others look like the females, or maybe a tube web spider, look how big the bulbs are on the pedipalps on the wolf lookin ones, and then this silverfish lookin guy is huge, about 1 inch....biggest i ever seen..im prolly gonna turn em all loose but maybe one of the biggest male lookin ones......and also the tiny spec of a spider is one i brought back from NC...and i think it might be a widow sling, but it is so small i cant get a good pic....its like the size of a needle tip...and dont have a clue how to feed him either....any info on any of these? thanks

Pics 1-5 looks like Hacklemesh Weavers to me...

Pics 6 & 7 are Archeognathanae (not sure of spelling), I think most call these "Bristletails".

The little sling is very small yet... I can't make out what it is...

All the spiders will eat FFF's and pinhead crix.

If that IS indeed Hacklemesh Weavers, mine loved bottleflies, pinhead crix, FFF's, fly larvae and small roach nymphs.

If the sling won't take live prey, disable a FFF and offer this... it should take it.

I have no idea what Bristletails eat... :confused:

Maybe someone else will better be able to help you... good luck!!! S.

ok go to this site cause alot of them look just like them....http://bugguide.net/node/view/7018/bgpage

and yea bristletail....i was thinking that or lawn shrimp or silverfish....but i knew it wasnt silver and i know that silverfish usually dont get that big...yeah the sling is hard to even see to the naked eye let alone get a good camera angle on....if you look at him very close he looks like the build of a widow...but i aint sure....i dont see how to feed him either, cause even my smallest FFF is 100 times bigger than him....i took a tiny latteralis nymph and killed it and put it in with him for a couple nights, dont have a clue if he ate off it though....
