Brown Widow Egg Sacs

And then there were three! We discovered these egg sacs and then were informed by our neighbor that they were brown widow eggs sacs. Kaleen also told us that there was a group who was collecting them for scientific research. So we went online, found that UC Riverside Department of Entomology was doing the research and explained how to collect the eggs and spider. Daddy was put in charge of the actual collection. Hannah and Alyssa sent a letter to Rick Vetter explaining where we lived and where on our property we found the spider and eggs sacs. It was fun to receive an email reply back too!
