I know with starburst baboons, they aren't very social spiders, but haven't seen much activity and I'm thinking of lifting her cave where she currently resides to see if theres a molt in her web. But thinking there might be another way to check for a molt.. Any ideas?

Are you referring to P. murinus or H. maculata?

Are you able to shine a light in there and look? If you lift the cave you'll have one upset spider lol.

ahhh it drives me crazy when they do that.

I wish I had a tiny camera in their burrow so I could monitor what they do behind their web curtains :)
