Your letter to the bugman: Hi, I spotted this new (to me) visitor to my yard a couple of weeks ago. She captured a little bee while hanging out on a cedum and guarded him for a while ( you can see it’s still present but long dead). Today, I noticed what I believe to be the egg sac. It’s been raining a few days so I don’t know when it was formed. Pretty cool.

Now that your Green Lynx Spider has laid an egg sac, you will be able to watch her fearlessly defend her brood.
Thank you for the information. I believe the rain will move out tonight and I can spy on her over the coming days. Any idea how long they take to hatch or whatever it’s called with spiders
Hi again KB,
This seems late in the season for a hatching. Our guess is they will over winter and hatch in the spring.
