Had to move orb weaver sac!

Asked March 10, 2020, 12:00 AM EDT

Hi- the landscapers removed all the juniper in which my orb weaver made her sac. I removed it still attached to the branch and wedged it in my fence as securely as I could. The sac looks papery now -about eight weeks have gone by. There are no exits from the sac. Have they all died in there or will it still hatch now that the weather has warmed? A strong wind blew it to the ground and I put it back. I’m worried about my spiderlings! Thank you!
