Advertisement New to caring about the fate of spiders. Early last summer a large tenty-looking web appeared from the corner of my porch railing down to some bushes. For some reason I didn’t clear it away. In mid-Aug I noticed something new hanging and eventually figured out they were egg cases – at least 15. I saw a few spiders for ID – basilica orbweavers. Cool. Well now Nov and most of the the egg cases are still there - what! they won’t hatch til spring! They will not likely last the winter in the current location, it’s snowbank territory. Should I try to move what’s left of the web? How? Where, garage or just more secluded spot? Does sun exposure matter? So clueless, should I just leave it to nature?
