How Long Can A Sun Spider Go Without Eating?

How Long Can A Sun Spider Go Without Eating?

Postby Jeremie » Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:38 am

My mom found one and we haven't done anything with it since yesterday morning. It hasn't eaten it 2 days as far as I know.

I'm thinking of releasing it but somewhere a bit farther than my house. (Probably a grassy patch a block away).

How long can it live without food then? It's still alive.

Quite a while. Spiders can live months without eating. Give the spider a break, it's harmless, it hasn't done anything to you. Do it a favor, release it. It will thank you by eating lots of insects :)

A long long time.

Two weeks of not eating is easy.

If it doesn't eat for two months then you should be concerned.
