The brown widow, as cousin to the black widow, is a frightening pest to have skittering around your house. Its egg sacs, with soft barbs like deep-fried blow fish, are equally frightening -- though needlessly so. Although their venom is twice as potent as the black widow, their bites release a tiny amount of poison. Thankfully, brown widows are cowards and will retreat from a fight, rarely defending their webs from attack. Take advantage of their poor defenses and swat the egg sacs to the ground or suck them up with a vacuum.
Swat the egg sac down with a rolled-up newspaper or broom. Crush the sac with your shoe to guarantee its demise. Clear away the remaining web.
Suck up the egg sac with a vacuum hose. Empty your vacuum a good distance from your house.
Jab the egg sac with the end of your broom to crush it. This may leave more mess than other methods.
