How To Add Ventilation Holes To A Plastic Vial Lid So The Spider Can Breath During Transportation
Vent holes allow fresh air to circulate inside the vial. This is essential for the healthy transportation of the spider. The perforations need to be of the right size to allow air flow, but eliminate the chance of the spider escaping. If the holes are too small, the spider won't receive oxygen. If the holes are too big, the spider may escape.
The holes can be poked/drilled in the following ways:
Method 1: Using a screwdriver
1. Turn the lid upside down and use a pencil to mark where the vent holes will be.
Method 2: Using a Power Drill
1. With the lid's inner part facing up mark the areas to be drilled with a pencil.
Always make sure the drill bit doesn't get too hot as this may melt the plastic thus making large holes.
Always make sure the container has a diameter that is three times that of the tarantula's leg span.
