As the cooler weather starts this fall, you might notice an increase in spider webs and spider activity in general. There are two reasons – First spiders have been present all summer, eating insects and growing – by early fall, they will be large enough to start noticing them. Second – fall is that time when they are preparing for the next generation. The first serious frost will kill the spiders that you see now. So spiders begin mating and producing egg sacs so their eggs can overwinter and re-establish the population next spring. These egg sacs will be placed in protected areas, and when warm weather arrives next spring, the eggs will hatch. Some spiders’ young hatch in the fall, live in the egg sac during the winter and then emerge. After laying eggs, the female spider will die.
If you are starting to see an increase in spider activity – call the Professionals here at BOG Pest Control – we can help.
