Post How do I keep spiders & ants out?
It is currently winter here so I wont be breeding them till summer, but I've noticed a bunch of spiders have taken home in my fly box of sorts, when I did try and breed them a couple months before winter ant's kept coming in and attacking the larvae. I've blocked off all the gaps with glue, but can't think of how else to prevent them.

There are some methods for dealing with ants discussed here (link). Not sure what can be done about spiders.

The best way to prevent anything unwanted from getting in my experience is putting the whole thing on legs and surrounding them in tubs filled with diatomaceous earth. This has worked so effectively for me that I no longer even think about infiltration by any non-winged creatures.
