Explosion of Wolf Spiders
Has anyone else noticed a huge number of wolf spiders (black ones) racing around their garden?I am seeing them in big numbers now - a population explosion! I have recently added a micro pond (washing up bowl size) to the garden, but I can't imagine it's attracted so many arachnids.
I had loads of ladybirds too, but their numbers have declined slightly in the last week or two and I'm wondering if the spiders have been feasting on them - not even sure they kill ladybirds.
I'd be interested to know if anyone else has witnessed this increase.I live in the north west of England by the way.
