my dorm doesn't spray pesticides at all. we dont even have housekeeping. of course, im not one to argue with an expert, but i thought tarantulas liked to be in the dark and keep to themselves. i was just gonna put the enclosure in a drawer, with it always cracked a bit open for ventilation, like hobbyists do. my roommate never gets in my stuff and i have no worries about him finding it. And he's never here. Also, my christmas break lasts an entire month. during that time i can make sure that my family knows how to take care of the tarantula just in case i do need to leave it at the house.I still say buy four. Sell them off as they grow and you sex them. When you get a confirmed female, just sell the rest of the slings. Sorry man, it's about the only way this is going to happen.
Although, if you're in a dorm, you can't really be in the invert hobby at all. They routinely spray pesticides, and you have no say in it. Plus, if you get caught, you could be faced with some hefty fines or worse. Remember, you're bringing a venomous animal into a room that isn't yours. Is this really worth the discipline that you can end up facing? Seriously, just hold off until you get your next place. This isn't fair to the spider or your roommate.
