    I fed my wild-caught big female A chalcodes a sphinx moth before I could get to the store for crickets. She ate the whole thing, left no bolus at all! She ate 26 large crickets the next week...

    I see no reason not to.. I mean they would certainly take it down in the wild.. I can't wait for warmer weather.. I'd love to see the wolf spider I caught eat a moth :)

    I heard its no good to feed anything from outside to the Ts. Since it could be expose to pesticides

    Oh ok. Thats something that unavailable where I am. Cool that you can get them. Must be interesting to see the T hunt those.

    For what it's worth, I used to hand feed a jumping spider moths that I took off my porch light.. He loved them.
