Thanks to all of you out there, my versicolor sling has just eaten her first meal. I tried baby mealworms and crickets without success. I read someone's post (actually advice from more than one person) that suggested "smooshing" a cricket and dropping it in there. I did just that and dropped it on her web and she began feeding immediately. I know it seems repetitious and mundane posting the same answers to the same questions, but for us arachnopeons (one post closer to nirvana), it is quite helpful.

good for you...glad they ate. That works really well, as does beef heart, which I fed mine a couple of times. They plump up like Thanksgiving turkeys on that stuff though :)
Mine are so cute, they will actually jump from hand to hand, and back down into their homes...it can be startling though!
