Are these what you are looking for? If so I have a couple of egg sacks located for you if you want them, or you could take the spiders also. I'm sure there are more egg sacks to come as these spiders are everywhere on the property.

In this one picture can see 3 of the spiders lol.

Beautiful! Yes, those are what I have been missing. I am sorely tempted to hop in the truck and come pick up an egg sack. Unfortunately, my wife absolutely HATES spiders. If I put one in our back yard she would never go outside again.

Oh, but I am so very tempted. Beautiful spiders...

Lol.

My wife hates them also. The garden spiders and the golden orb weavers like the openings between the canes of the black berries and raspberries. Since I have a couple hundred feet of the brambles I accumulate a lot of spiders. As long as they make the webs high enough the ducks can't eat them they are safe here. I rather like seeing them..heck you can even pet the golden orb weavers.

Very nice. I miss those as well, Used to have them up in my northern gardens. I love these big orb weavers. I don't see a lot of (or any) spiders in my garden here in Florida.

I am in urban St Pete, but I was thinking for me it was all the anoles in my yard. Lizards everywhere. But I think the large numbers of lizards mean that there is a healthy ecosystem outside. But also think they munch on any spiders that try to get a hold in my yard.

Bear,

We have 100's of lizards around so don't think that is it. A lot of people hate the spiders and kill them on sight, i'm sure it takes it's toll on the population.
