Daddy long legs (Pholcus phalangioides) are fond my bathroom. I can normally coexist with them; they don't disturb me, I don't disturb them, and they're too much of a pain to move when they're on the ceiling.
However... sometimes, one comes in bearing an egg sac.

This poses a much more significant annoyance. The last time I tried moving one of these, it exploded into about three dozen spiders. I fled. That many spiders is too much for me. One or two I can coexist with. 28 like there were last time? No way in hell.
I don't want to kill any spiders, though. I'd feel worse about that than living with them while they move out into the great beyond. So, that being said...
How do I move the egg sac without:
- breaking the egg sac, or
- harming the spiders?
