    cheers Peter although not out of the woods yet, i had 2 balfouri sacs last year at this time and lost both (one was my own fault, apparently spiders dont like hammer drills being used in the same room during this period :/ )

    I'll have to remember that when I try with my 2 females next year, I'll make the spider shed a silent zone (no talking except in whispers) LOL
