Have you noticed an increase in spiders lately? Maybe you've seen them crawling around your house or you've run into their webs outside. Many people hope for fall so the spiders can semmingly go into hiding; however, spiders actually become more active in the fall. Want to know why?
Spiders typically mate in the fall after the males become mature. It's not long before they die or go back into hiding before winter hits. If you don't see a lot of spiders, that's a sign that you don't have a lot of bugs where you are. Like other pests, and animals, spiders go where the food is. They'll leave to find a new home and leave you the hassle of cleaning up their cobwebs.
