On the day of the summer solstice, I decided to check on the spider in its cocoon. It had been a month since my initial discovery the spider living there. I found that the sack was beaming with life. The mother was inside with about 15 babies. There appeared to be an opening in the sack because one tiny spider had emerged on the surface. I decided that given the numbers of spiders living within, it was probably a good idea to see if I could coax them outside, rather than have them all start to wander inside my closet area. Gently opening the window, I placed the sheer outside. Then I went out on my patio to watch what emerged. Within a relatively short period of time the mother came out and quicky went to explore the outside area around the window. Then, slowly one by one, the baby spiders began to appear. Some required a little encouragement. I rubbed my fingers lightly on the back side of the sheer to get them to move. After about an hour all of the spiders had come outside of the sack to discover their new home. They were then free to enjoy the rest of their days in the big open world.
