Why Do Some Spiders Lay Their Eggs On People?

Spiders don’t lay eggs in human skin.

Other insects may do this, like the mites that create the skin disorder scabies, but spiders are far too concerned with the well-being of their offspring to entrust them to the likes of us.

Warmth isn’t necessarily what mother spiders are seeking for their egg sacs; security is.

And that means protection from predators like birds. Yes, it’s true, some birds eat spiders.
