How long does spider season last? The 5 spiders out ALL YEAR


Spider season is here and arachnophobes are desperate for this short period to be over. From the first or second week of September, you’ll spot more and more spiders around your home. Even though spider season doesn’t last very long, there are some spider species that you’ll be able to see all year round. Express.co.uk reveals the five spider species that are out ALL YEAR. How long does spider season last?

At the start of September when the leaves start to fall and the weather is still fairly warm, spiders start to creep out of hiding and into your homes.

It is thought that spiders ‘come out’ at this time because of the cold weather, but this isn’t the case.

The most prevalent spider in the UK, the common house spider, is specially adapted to indoor climates.

This means they normally live in your home regardless of the weather as it provides a constant climate.

Fewer than five percent of the spiders you see inside have ever seen the outside world!

Spider season isn’t spiders crawling into your homes, it’s simply the time of year where spiders mate.

A huge 80 percent of the spiders you see will be male spiders who are on the hunt for a female mate.

Females tend to stay put inside, hidden in warm crevices or low-key webs.

Don’t worry, spider mating season should be over by October and these spiders will be far less visible.

The following 10 spiders will be less common from October onwards, or aren’t common at all:

  • Labyrinth spider
  • Cucumber spider
  • Green huntsman spider
  • Jumping spiders
  • Yellow sac spider
  • Buzzing spiders
  • Running crab spider
  • Marbled orb weaver spider
  • Tube web spider
  • Sheet web spider
