Over the past few weeks I have noticed a lot of cross spiders. They seem to be everywhere.
I walk into webs when I leave the house in the morning, and if I wander anywhere off the beaten path around the yard I also get a face full of web. I’ve talked to neighbors and co-workers and everyone seems to be noticing that they are all over the place.
Cross Spiders are easy to identify- they spin orb-shaped webs and have an obvious white cross on their backs- see this post for a good photo.
As you can see from these photos, the spiders seem to have plenty to eat. I suppose that is part of the reason why they seem to have filled every single inch of space in the yard.
