It's spider season, and you may notice more than usual in your home this year. Scientists at the University of Gloucester say heavy rain and record-breaking temperatures this summer have created the perfect conditions for the insects spiders eat to thrive. That means the well-fed eight-legged insects are now heading inside to look for a mate. The researchers took to Twitter and found people were tweeting about spotting spiders earlier and more often than at the same time last year. And just to make things worse-- they say there's evidence that spiders are bigger than normal this year. Still, keep in mind that though spiders may seem scary, they play a crucial role in our environment by helping control insect populations.
