Identifying Weird Grey Balls Under the Boiler?

I was doing some painting around the house when I got to the boiler room and noticed a lot of grey balls under the boiler and I was wondering if they were spider eggs or something. I tried going to sites to identify them, but nothing was shown. I really hope someone can tell me what they are as I'm having trouble reaching them to get rid of them.

I had something similar and they were spider eggs.

Best to suck them up with a shop vac and then drown them. I had a friend who vacuumed them up in the vacuum cleaner and the bag broke before she could get it outside and they had hatched and it was a horrible mess. Her kids still talk about that 25 years later.

Scrub the area down with bleach and they should not return.

Hope it helps.

You could use broom to reach, there are spider cocoons, which will hatch soon.

Not sure what type of spyders are in your area but this is what type of eggs they are. You should try and get them out of there now before they hatch or break. You can try to vacuum them up or use a bucket and scrap them off.


Any way you do this the eggs need to be killed in a bucket of water. I would take the bucket and dump the eggs in the water from the start and allow them to stay in the water for several hours before destroying them completely.
