Spiderling feeding

Can you overfeed a spiderling (B. smithi) or will it just stop eating
when it's had enough? I ask because I fed mine 2 pinheads yesterday,
and another 3 today and basically it seems to have polished them off
within hours. So do I keep going until it stops eating or do I stick
to the recommended 2 or 3 every couple of days?

They do stop eating when they have had enough but it would be best to
stick to the 2-3 micros every few days. I feed my really young ones
once a week.

They'll stop feeding when they've had enough.

Tarantulas will not overfeed. They will stop when they have had enough.
On the other hand, scorpions will overeat and cause thier abdomens to
split.

Be excellent to each other!
