Odd year for bugs - no spiders?
So my poor tomato transplants are getting attacked by whiteflies, aphids & flea beatles. This is the first year I've had this problem, and while contemplating the situation, I realized I haven't been seeing any spiders this year. Usually I have a few in every bed. This year, haven't really seen any.
I'm in the Northeast. Anyone else experiencing this?
I wonder what could be the cause. Too warm winter? I'm also noticing fewer worms (and younger worms) this year.
