first of off, i have 3 widows and a sack, im assuming theyre western blacks concidering my location.

sendond, if i want to ship these off do they need any kind of special care or can i stick them inside a pill vile (seperate of course) and just ship em off in a box?

can eggsacs be shipped along with em?

Yeah they should be western widows(Latrodectus hesperus).

Ship them as you suggested but put some paper towel or TP in the vile so they don't have much room to slide around and they should be fine. Shipping the egg sac will also be fine I have done this on several occasions.

Put your vials in the center of a box and use crumpled newspaper or foam to hold it near the center ofthe box and to keep the vial(s) from moving around.

Put one or two pinholes in the vial lids...not larger esp for the one w the egg sac as if it hatches out in transit the slings can get out if the holes are any larger...that would not be good.
