Spores on Ferns

I have three different perennial ferns I purchased this year -- two cinnamon stick ferns, four Autumn ferns and two lady ferns. Some of the leaves have what I am calling "spores" on the back of their leaves--brown "eggs" uniformly positioned. Is this a bad thing? Should I be spraying or doing something to get rid of these "spores?

The spores are perfectly natural; they are the fern's way of reproducing itself. Just as other plants have seeds, ferns have spores. You don't need to do a thing with them.
