(CNN) — Hurricanes can make spiders more aggressive.
Researchers have found that spiders that live in the storm prone areas, like the Gulf of Mexico and the east coast, can become far less docile after a major storm event.
Colonies aggressively pursue food and produce more egg cases.
The spiderlings also have a better chance of surviving into early winter.
Information was gathered by monitoring subtropical storm Alberto and hurricanes Florence and Michael during the 2018 hurricane season.
