Hurricanes lead to more aggressive spiders

News

(WTNH)– With hurricane season reaching its peak, a new study says there’s more than just the storm to worry about.

Researchers found spiders living in storm prone areas like here on the east coast actually become more aggressive.

Since the arachnids feel like their lives are in danger, they more aggressively search for food and actually reproduce faster.

So, just one more thing to worry about this hurricane season.
