Make 1 foundation and put 8 walls on it making a 2 high box without a lid, drop the spider into this funnel like trap, when you see it's legs show through the trap from the outside look at them directly and you can feed it, you do not need bug repellent for this
So, biggest thing no one tells you on here. If you only have repellant and no ghille, put it on and go at them from the SIDE!! Not head on, not directly behind. The side. Never aggros on you that way. From the back and front even with repellant it aggroed 3x each before i tried it this way.
Not exactly the best combat mount, slow, stamina isn't the best, a little squishy. But a few high levels of these on base defence are pretty good. Put a few in the inner parts of your base (along with the centipedes to wreck enemies armour) and the will have your enemies tangled up in seconds!
