Be Careful Not To Damage Spiderwebs

We are very careful not to destroy spider webs. The spider spends day and night catching mosquitoes and other flying insects. We don't have enough mosquitoes to feed many spiders because they have been working hard over the past three or four years. With the bats, spiders, back yard chickens and geese in the water, we find it difficult to even see a mosquito here in the swamps.

These are our little bug catching friends! We have one we call Fred. He stays in one spot up by our ceiling. I was going to take the web down but my partner (who usually HATES spiders) said he enjoys seeing the little guy's conquests. The other day he had a fight with a moth & was hanging by a thread while the moth flew all around the ceiling. The spider eventually won but had to remake his web.

We have one hanging around the front door right now. I think he has moved from the back yard garden to the front door. It looks just like the one you have pictured. I like to see these spiders. They are wonderful at keeping flies and other bugs away from the house. At one time the grandkids would catch bugs to feed one that hung out along the side walk.
