Spiders hatched on garden waste bin


My garden waste bin went out yesterday and was used again in the afternoon. By mid-day today two nests of spiders had hatched out on the lid rim. The baby spiders huddled together unless disturbed, when there was frantic activity for a short while before they settled again. I washed the bin handles and front lip of the lid after it was emptied yesterday but evidently did not do a thorough job on the sides.
