"It's official! Colorado's tarantula cluster is on the move as thousands of this hairy spider species having started their search for a mate around the Centennial State.

According to an article published by Colorado State University, the tarantula 'migration' typically starts in southeastern Colorado at the end of August, lasting through September. The peak of this first wave is happening right now, with a number of OutThere Colorado readers already taking to Facebook to show posts from their tarantula tracking experience.

This first wave is followed by a southwestern migration that typically peaks in October. Following the mating season, all males typically die within months if the cold weather doesn't kill them first."
