Can I relocate egg sacs left by yellow and black garden spiders?

Asked October 6, 2019, 2:25 PM EDT

I must have 15 - 20 yellow and black garden spiders and no idea how many sacs! Three of the sacs are on the underside of my deck rail and I wonder how they will fare in the winter with the wind. I've found several in bushes that I would like to trim. Can I remove them and place them somewhere else and if so, how should I pick a spot. Thank you!

You can move the prunings that have egg sacs to a sheltered location. The other egg sacs will be fine even if they are exposed to wind.
