Harbingers of fall
Unfortunately, they are showing up inside the house already too. (This may have something to do with the empty egg sack I found behind one of the toilet tanks. Argh.) Good thing I have a new vacuum -- by November, they will be just too big to squish.
In any case, I always know September is just about here when they appear. Although I find them a bit creepy, I can't help but admire their lovely brown and black markings and appreciate how artistic and resilient they are. Nomatter how many times I walk through their webs, they immediately rebuild!
For the most part, I think the ones in my yard are European Garden Spiders.
What kind of spiders have you started seeing?
