    once we had a big yellow garden spider outside our front screen door, when you opened the door she would gather up the web and when it closed she would let it back out, was funny but finally we just stopped using that door so she didn’t have to work so hard. lol She was about the size of a mans thumb nail, her body that is.

    Spiders in the fall? Of course! Best time to forage for winter! Just check the webs in the grass, bushes when it’s not frosted, but heavily dewed. And I can never figure out how they can build their webs so damned fast! I just went THROUGH that door! GAK!

    Dog!?!?!?! From where did the dog come? I have never seen a dog in this strip before.

    Been there. Walked out the open garage door one evening and through a huge spider web that hadn’t been there minutes before. Bent over to get said webs out of my hair and equally huge spider slowly rappels off my head to the ground. GAK!!!

    Spiders are neat – and they keep other small pests down. I leave them alone in the house unless they are poisonous and entirely alone outside.

    In Western Oregon, the spiders hardly even slow down until the January freeze. That’s during the years when it freezes at all. The climate is known as “temperate rainforest.”

    Here no spiders are poisonous, so I give them free admission to house, hoping they keep it free of flies and mosquitoes.

    But it is indeed annoying to find a web between soap and wall – like I’d never wash…

    Here in Texas, we don’t have that luxury; so many species are harmful to humans that the general presumption is “if you can’t identify it as harmless, whack it”.

    I myself have had no less than two close calls with black widows.

    question- do male spiders spin webs? Aren’t the females usually bigger? I could Google this, but I’d rather ask you.
