Posts with the tag: "spiders in Colorado"
Spiders are a foe to many with their creepy crawly legs and their ability to show up speedily and unannounced. While spiders in their own habitat, outdoors, seem less threatening, when they make their way inside your home it’s a whole new ball game. Yes, spiders appreciate your comfy cozy home just as much as you do. If you have these unwelcomed guests come into your home, tension can arise. Even worse, if one evening you see a spider crawling along the wall, couch, or bed, and it scurries away from your reach before it can be captured, you may find yourself sleeping with one eye open.
You might think that spider populations around your Colorado home are on the rise as we conclude summer, but the truth is they're just more noticeable, according to University experts. When insects begin to breed and grow their populations in spring, you're not likely to notice them as much. Wolf spiders are 100 times more abundant in late spring, but they are smaller and their webs are smaller as well. Late summer is when your common house spider is going to be sexually mature and searching for opportunities to mate. That means you're going to be seeing these spiders more often, but just because you don't have more spiders around your home in fall doesn't mean you should take any fewer measures to exclude them.
You know that this time of year is when we turn our attention to the first harvest of late summer and begin to reap the benefits of our hard spring and summer’s work. It’s always a rewarding experience to pick those first ‘sprouts’ of vegetables and steam up the green beans, sauté the peppers and scallions, or boil up some beets. There’s nothing like the taste of those fresh from the garden sprouts on a balmy late summer evening! Here in Colorado, however, our vegetables are not the only thing that has sprouted this year.
