She has had this web on the front porch all summer, and moves it nightly. She moved it over the stairs going to the front yard. Wife moved it before someone got into a "Ninja" moment if they decided to exit the porch at night using this exit. Charlotte is now back in the middle of the porch opening.

Those are cool spiders. We have a bunch of them and I refuse to let anyone kill one. I had a guy over here buying something and he was going to smash one. I told him I would smash him if he tried it. He was terrified of it. Best reason to keep them around LOL>

She was gently coaxed to move, I could imagine someone like one of the kids running through the web (Hence the ninja comment).

Wife used a broom to pull the bottom of the web loose, she ran to the top, then poked at her so she moved to another area. She moves nightly.

Well, first you train her to only spin inside a large, empty picture frame....

I think as long as the spiders can figure it out all is good.

Pull wings off flies and chuck into web, those spiders can move very quickly, i still do that sometimes.

 

Now let's talk about mothers and spiders :biting_nails:
