Where did all the spiders go?

I am not an arachnophobe, but like most people, I react poorly to spiders being on me or near me in unexpected circumstances. If I am out hiking, and a spider brushes against my hand, I will freak out a little!

And it seemed that spiders were a common thing. I have heard the statistics about always being within a few feet of spiders, wherever we go.

But now that I am on iNaturalist, and would enjoy seeing some spiders to get observations, they seem to be very rare. Even after I go into the woods and look at cobwebs and look at their edges...spiders are not the prevalent thing I remember them being!
