Large spider webs were everywhere in my garden last summer, but I haven't seen any so far this year. Some tiny web or several strings hanging on the washing line. I remembered that my daughter wanted some pets, such as cute dog, or cuddly cat or even a pony. I suggest that she can have spider as pet, because she doesn't know how to clean up dog poo, or gives cat a bath; she can't take dog out for a walk alone, because it is very dangerous to cross the road to the park, and too expensive to keep a pony.
But I found many big spiders inside my house this year, one huge spider even crawled over my mouse and then moved to the table corner and down along table leg, then went to hide somewhere.
I wonder why spider population declines. Will it boom next year?
