Be On The Lookout For A New Invasive Species Of Spider In Connecticut This Year

How do you feel about spiders? If you’re like most people, you probably hate them. If you’re an arachnophobe, you’ll want to be careful going out this spring. Connecticut is expected to be invaded by the Joro spider, a fearsome-looking invader from Asia who already hit the East Coast last year. They’re expected to head further north this spring, and we’re very likely to have quite a few in the Nutmeg State. Be on the lookout for this colorful creature!
