My Trantulas arent eating

I have two Rose Hairs, one male close to adult or possibly already there, and one adult female aged about 8 years. Neither of them have eaten in months, probably around 3 or 4. I dont think the female is going to molt, she doesnt seem darker or anything, and the male molted in October of last year. I know tarantulas can go awhile without eating, but Im starting to get worried about them. Why might they not be eating? Anything I should check, enclose-wise? Thanks

Firstly G.rosea have a reputation for fasting for long periods. Secondly have you changed anything in their enclosures recently? As long as they aren't visibly losing weight they should be fine and will eat when they're ready.
