I've decided that there were definitely too few spiders this season. Not all spiders, but there has been a marked decline in orb-weavers this year. You know, the ones that build huge webs between the house and the side-gate. The webs that hit me in the face when I take out the garbage. Or walk through the arboretum early in the morning. Where have they gone? Jerry agrees, he has seen very few of these big orb-webs on his daily walks around the neighborhood.
How about you, in your area? Do you still see plenty of these big round spiders? Please take a moment to answer my poll, located in the sidebar, and feel free to elaborate in the comment section. I'm just curious, is all.
