I reached under a chair that sits by the back door, sweeping out dead leaves, when I noticed a fringe of spider web on the underside. Flipped over, the chair turned out to be sheltering a spider and her enormous brood of spiderlings.
|Mother and egg sac, with frass, and a few of the spiderlings in the upper left corner.|
|A handful of spiders, about 1 or 2 mm. long.|
She had been very busy; there were four of those egg sacs, two still apparently still holding babies. And at least 100 chubby "lings" scattered over the whole bottom of the chair.
