But not as bad as a well webbed up Avic or GBB container - embedded urticating hairs make it whole different kind of choreOriginally posted by Atrax
It's going to be fun the day you have to clean the enclosure with all that insane webbing.

How long have those without much webbing left their spiders undisturbed for? The adults have been in their enclosures for almost a year now without me destroying their webbing. I will use long forceps to carefuly pluck moults etc. from their enclosures. Also, I start with fairly bare enclosures. About 2" of peat, a water dish and a peat cup hide. They all started out hiding in the peat cup (well, half peat cup) and then the webbing starts. It took them a couple months to get a bit of a matt down and then from there it just seems to explode overnight. Another key might be the size of the enclosures. They are fairly small and I gather they understand that the whole space is their burrow. Thus, they usualy create this extensive network of hiding spots and tunnels.
