Moved from Metacyrba.

why would you
release him into your house again? He will surely get dehydrated and die.
I am keeping the one I just found in a CD spindle and he is eating those pesky meal moths that I have been finding around the house

 
Not sure
I find spiders living in the house all of the time. I have some that live off in a corner or behind the curtains for months and months. I think the bugs they eat are their moisture. If it was living in my house before I caught it, I think it can continue after a few pictures. It could always leave.
