    Hi, just wondering if anyone knows what this is? It's not on the leaf. I think it is attached to a spiders web. It looks like a load of balls.IMG_00000057.jpg

    Hard to see but it looks like it could be Spiders eggs perhaps.. The rain may have washed the egg nest down from corner on the fence.. I could be wrong see what others think.. ;) :thumbsup:

        :whistle: If you don't like them just get hold of the web and move it to next door or somewhere.. :whistle: Or of course dispose of how you want... Spiders are gardeners friends really.. ;) :thud:

        I'm thinking its probably a mass of tiny spiders not eggs as such.
        Great fun when you walk through a mass of these early in the morning, spend the rest of the day having them dangle down your face out of your hair.:snork:
