Now that the spider has finished working on the egg sack, she has to get working on keeping it protected for the winter. This is what this short video is showing. After making the egg sack, she dedicates another hour in putting up a strong framework of silk, protecting it from wasps and ants. (Another longer vid of another spider doing the same process coming soon.) After the spider finished her 10 hours of persistent hard working and effort, she decided to gaurd the egg sack for another 3 hours before she goes back to her routine of doing it all over again. Unfortunately, the eggs didn't make it. The sack got destroyed by a bird in the middle of winter, and paraseptic wasps got to it. THESE SPIDERS ARE HARMLESS, BLIND (for the most part), and NOT DEADLY (unless you have really severe reaction to bug bites, but this spider is still quite unlikely to bite you.).
