Noticed these (11) egg sacs in our Aloe barberae tree, and I have never seen anything like them in my life. I haven’t found the mama yet, but after looking around I am guessing them to be from the Bolas spider. LOL, I was ready to call the State bug authorities and have them terminated, but from what I read, they are harmless moth eaters so I will let them be. They are still a bit scary to look at.

Dear Gman,
We agree that these are Egg Sacs of a Bolas Spider, and we concur that the adult Bolas Spider is harmless as well as being difficult to find as they resemble bird droppings.
