caught my baby king in 4 days. left food in the hallway and put masking tape all around the doors (sticky side up).

If you try this remember to only use masking tape as anyting else is too sticky.

All the best

I had a nake in my conservatory for 6 weeks he eventually turned up hale and hearty but id concluded he had escaped for good and filled his tank lol.i had stripped that place and left no stone unturned where he was i couldnt tell you, i think aliens had kidnapped him. had to have a emergency box hunt to rehome him as i was at capacity at the time.

Still hoping a certain cali king turns up, about 3 months later, but he escaped in my partner's parents' house and they've given him up for dead(!) I kinda feel sure he's still about!! The other corn turned up after 4 weeks after living under the floor, ju know where he was found? Drinking out the toilet!! (he's a big guy) Don't give up hope, they seem to stay on the grounds of the house, where they can find warm places, and as people have said, eating spiders. Take the trapping and tracking advice, cus they stay alive alot longer than people expect

Hope she turns up soon all the best

Hoggies don't tend to go far but for all people say they don't climb I had an escapee hoggie baby made it into a box 4' above her tub in the rack.

I hope you find her soon.
