Feeding: Start off by feeding the spider ¼” crickets, dubia. Juveniles can be fed as often as they will eat, try to offer prey items at least once a week. If they have any food left over the next day, remove it, prey items can damage a molting spider. Many spiders will refuse prey before a molt. For adults, 5-6 adult crickets, or a few dubia roaches a week should be fine, just gut load them.
