Being so common in the hobby, what do you do with them? Do they sell like other species? I don't imagine they do, but just in case I'll ask. Do you give them away? What do you do with slings of the most common T in the hobby?

I was wondering about that too. And what about LPs? That's thousands of babies! Where do they all end up?

Not many people breed spiders like G. rosea because of how difficult they are to get rid of.

Another thing to do is give them away as freebies when you sell other stuff.

You could just give them away. Have the person pay for shipping and send them however many they want. Pretty easy way to get rid of them.

Sometimes I'll fry them up with a little olive oil, basil, and garlic powder. They taste like popcorn.

You could just keep them. Who doesn't want hundreds of fluffy baby spiders!

Weird.... Mine tasted like popcorn shrimp.. :?
If you raise a few, you could sell them to LPSs. In bulk. Who wouldn't want better quality tarantulas for 3 bucks that they could rip others off by selling for 10?

Well someone said trade them on here so I asked. I wouldn't trade much for them either lol. Although the tamagotchi sounds good... J/k. So basically they aren't tradeable for anything really, so I guess they aren't really that sellable either. Well with all these rosea's, somebody is breeding them. So what is the best option to get rid of them?
