Am I better moving females to a smaller enclosure before breeding or leaving them in large enclosures?

what size do you class as 'large' I have AF pokies in either the 20x20x30 or 30x30x40 enclosures (wxdxh) and just put males in.
I have a pair of P Mets that have been living together in a 30c30x40 for about 3 weeks now.
To add...it is always better to introduce a male to an enclosure the female has been in for a while so he can pick up signs and get all revved up. ;)

Mine are in 45x45x90 exo terras. I have been told they are large. My concern is they are "scaped" and have multiple hides built into the background. I dont want the male to run and hide and I cant get him out

I would not worry. I have those and my males stay hidden for a very long time. 6 months and more... they always come out at one point to look for a partner :)

Yes but what I mean is..... if I put him in her enclosure and she chases him. He may hide in her enclosure and I wont be able to reach him.....but she will

If he runs and can hide he will be safe. I have a male and female Ch. andersoni in one of those. He made him a retreat. They are together since 3 weeks...

Well if it works I will try my P. subfusca lowland first. They are the ones I'm most worried about lol

If he can run and hide... I sometimes add extra bark for easy escape ;)

My enclosures are 45x45x90cm I will just have to stand by and watch
Watch and do what??? You cant do anything about what she wants to do to him. Your reaction time is basically in reverse compared to a Poecilotheria. Just put your Male in and leave the door open so maybe he can escape.
