CE: The Science of…Spiders

Thursday, September 16, 2021
3:00 pm4:00 pm
Virtual Event

It’s natural to fear spiders, they have eight legs and many eyes, and are very different from humans. However, they do really important things and overall they tend to avoid humans. Spiders are also really good for our environment- they eat numerous other pesty bugs that you don’t want anywhere else such as your garden or your home. In this episode we will learn all about different types of spiders in Nebraska, talk about different types of webs, and discuss what to do when spiders enter your home. Because, let’s be honest everyone has spiders in their house, it’s totally normal! So join us and find out all about these eight legged weirdos in the environment.
