    Hey I'm new here in the forum. I was cleaning behind my desk I found a spider running with small white sac with it. I captured him in a bottle to free it the day after. The next day I found that there is a lot of white dots it is baby spiders got out from that white sac. However; I didn't know what to do so I made a plastic jar with small holes for ventilation so little spiders can't escape.
    I moved the mother and little spiders to it carefully and put a living fly to the jar. The mother caught it. I want to know If I can keep them then what I have to do or How to free them if that is better for them I don't know anything about spiders or even my spider type. I have attached the mother pic feeding on the fly and one of the little spider pic.
    Note I found that the spider mother lost the back left leg.

    I do this by just leave the jar opened outside? It's ok for me. I was scared that something may attack them. If that is the best of course I will do this. Thanks for your reply.
