Hero Strategy

Broodmother is weak until level 6. Focus on last hitting and sustaining health until you have Spawn Spiderlings.

Make sure not to feed spiderlings away as that greatly affects your farming speed and kill threat.

Once you have built up an army of spiderlings, try to play on the opponents side of the map as much as you can.

Place Observer Wards and Sentries in the enemy jungle so you feel comfortable playing there.

If you are feeling endangered, let your spiderlings farm while staying hidden on hero.

Broodmother can take Roshan down fairly early. Move spiderlings out when Roshan is about to clap.

Counter Strategy

Consider putting a hero that can deal with Spiderlings against her on the lane.

Block off her camps with sentries as she gets closer to level 6.

If you are looking to gank Broodmother you need at least 3 heroes otherwise pressure other two lanes.

Crimson Guard and armor items are good against Broodmother.

Healing and regeneration reducing items are good against Insatiable Hunger.

Evasion piercing items are good against Brood's Silken Bola.

Broodmother is good at taking an early Roshan. Ward around Roshpit and check.
