Finding spider egg sacks...

...is much preferred to NOT finding them, and then noticing hundreds of little itty bitty black widows around.


Even better is realizing the black spider next to said egg sacks is not a black widow. Double phew!

Where did you find it?

Well, that one I found inside, nestled between some notebooks laying on their sides on an unused bookcase. I later decided it was a black widow after all; a male one.

The next day I found ANOTHER black widow AND two more egg sacks that I disposed of, outside inside a container for toys (long-since empty, which is why spiders had been taking up residence there). I flushed those egg sacks and disposed of the black widow as well. She was a big beauty, though.
