    I have a pot with onion seeds in and when I disturbed the soil today hundreds of these, what look like baby spiders with yellow bodies came pouring out . The have yellow bodies - Is it a spiders nest ? only I've never seen anything like this before.upload_2020-5-4_20-44-44.pngupload_2020-5-4_20-44-44.pngupload_2020-5-4_20-44-44.png

      Yep spiders, they end up being those ones that are all over the place on those Autumn mornings.

        As @Silver surfer says, looks a bit shocking, but really they are gardeners friends as they will eat up lots of the bugs you do not want!

        Try and keep as many as we can in the greenhouse.
