So I live in downtown Waukesha. Right outside my window is the Fox River. The little riverwalk is there and all that. It would be really enjoyable, if it werenâ€™t horribly overrun with spiders. If you go out for a walk at night along the river, it would be impossible to count all of them. There are easily tens of thousands. In my window (on the outside) there are a good 10-20 of them. They range from the size of a pinhead to the size of a quarter. My girlfriend is terrified of them. If we leave the blinds open they make some rather menacing shadows on the wall/ceiling. Thankfully, there have not been any inside out place. I emailed the city of Waukesha about the infestation, as a block away the river is virtually bug free. I received a reply saying they have tried, but the pollution issue is obviously a concern. They randomly sweep the guardrails and walkways to clear the webs, but they return within a day. Iâ€™ve never had too much of a problem with spiders, but it is getting fairly disgusting. Thereâ€™s one good thing about winter, they all die.
