Rise of the Arachnids: Hatchlings Foreshadow Spider Invasion

Neighbor Amanda snapped this lovely-but-nightmare-inducing photo of baby spiders emerging from a clutch of eggs behind her home on Mullen Avenue. Naturally, this scene is no doubt being, er, reproduced all around Bernal Heights, so don’t be surprised if you start to see more spiders lurking in your yard during the weeks and months ahead.
