Spiders are most numerous in late summer.


Actually, August and September are the worst time of year for northern hemisphere spider collectors. A few large conspicuous spider species (including the larger orbweavers and the giant house spiders) are mature at that time, but not many other spiders are. People who believe this myth judge all spiders from the very few species that they happen to notice.
