Spiders – Close To Home

Q: I found a spider egg sack outside my bedroom window. Should I remove it?

A: If the window is within reach outdoors, I’d remove the pouch and place it in a landscape shrub. The spider itself is very likely harmless because venomous spiders don’t construct an egg sac in exposed places. However, when tiny spiders of any kind hatch, they can crawl through cracks in your window frame and come indoors, which I don’t think you’ll like. Better to give the young spiders a new environment where they can do some good for the environment after they hatch.
