"Answer for Jess 10-8-08 : I hope your tarantula's appetite is back to normal. My "spikey" had gone through almost the same behavior. She stopped molting, stopped eating and became very weak. I even remember seeing little white insect critters all over her body (like fleas on a dog). She eventually passed away. We only had her for 2 years (I really don't know how old she was). Just like you, I had no clue what was going on. Before she died, I gave her crickets hoping she'd eat . . . but the crickets were just jumping all over her and she was not responding at all, she avoided them, matter of fact. My best guess : probably your spider and mine ate a cricket in the past that had ingested some form of pesticide. And that cricket somehow we bought from the pet store or perhaps the cricket ingested the pesticide we sprayed in our own homes. I really do wish that your pet is better now. I felt terribly helpless for my Spikey. "
