Hi

=D Welcome in the "club",,

I did the same thing some month ago and I just had to go for the good old hand-catch-hunt,,but I did one thing that seemed to work after a little while: I put some cold,boiled potatoes on the floor on different places and left the room dark and after 20 - 30 minutes some of them had come out to the smell of food.

Well,,I can't say it will work to 100% ,but you might get some.

Also I had this second thought about using them as T food afterwards , because I was thinking about with what things the floor had been cleaned with and if they had got it on them ,,and so on,,but hense, maybe my usual "paranoia",,:D

Thanks, I'll try that method for any more i see. But most of them feel victum to the vacum cleaner because i dont know how badly i wanted to feed them to my Ts after they'd been on the floor. I cought some of them with a big pair of forceps.

anyways, my A.Genuculata is doin great! I plopped in an appropriate sized cricket and in literally one second or less it was spent. I can see how good eaters these spiders are and how aggressive they are towards food!

All for now,

Mark

We have found some "non-toxic" mouse traps. They are just really, really sticky things. Placed in strategic places in the room they catch most stray crickets. The downside is that it could also catch an escapee of ours -- but since we haven't had one yet we don't worry too much.

Cheers,
Dave

I Have tons of crickets in with my scorpions, whenever one of the little singing buggers escape they head for under the fridge cause they get much better acoustics. All i need to do is put egg carton down by they fridge and they'rew magically drawn to it!:cool:
