Spiders And Creepy Crawlers

Dustin Humes

Spiders are everywhere this time of year. Invading our warm houses and dangling from large artificial webs to startle trick or treaters. We all encounter spiders all the time, but a lot of what we know about them is wrong.

On this Halloween-eve edition of Talk of Iowa, Charity Nebbe is joined by Donald Lewis and Cindy Hayes to answer listener questions about the plants, trees and bugs in their lives.


Donald Lewis, Iowa State University entomologist

Cindy Haynes, Iowa State University extension horticulture specialist
