Spider Web Recycling
my sister lives in Illinois. while visiting there she was
telling me about 2 spiders that come out at night under the eves of
her porch, the each weave a web to catch prey, but in the morning
there is never a sign of the web, what happens to the web? I looked
at different spiders and it might be an orb weaving spider.
Some species of spider will catch their food in the evening, then roll
their food up in their web and carry it away. If they do not catch anything,
they will roll up their web and carry it away to use the next night!
