Hi. that is sure what it looks like.
yeah, I love these spiders. Watched Momma thru the summer of 2016 and one day she was gone and about 3 day later I found egg sack on my deck. Now last year I had 5 females around my deck and when it turned cold I found 3 egg sacks. it’s getting warm now and I am excitedly awaiting a new family.
Just keep an eye around the egg sacs,soon you may spot a cluster of those little yellow with black spiderlings.
