I have a friend who is doing work with palpigrades one of the arachnid groups. The problem is there is so little work done on them we don't know much about them and there isn't much success keeping them in the lab. I'm trying various setups but they all involve a lot of soil therefore it is hard to observe them because palpigrades are very very small. They need about 80% humidity. I think environmental conditions could be controlled n something like an ant nest any thoughts?

Love all the Hymenopterans!!! :D
