Spider Web

Mar 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Youth Blog

One night I was watching a spider catch a moth outside my window and I wondered why spiders are important to the earth.

Well, spiders control bug populations.

If you see a spider, you can assume there are a good amount of bugs in that area. If there’s a spider in your house, however, it probably means that it’s cold outside and the spider wanted to get warm.

The particular spider I saw was in the middle. It had made its web close enough to the house to be warm. The web was by an illuminated window, so moths were very abundant. That’s how the spider got its food.

Spiders are known to live everywhere except for the coldestest, most northern places and the cold, most southern places. There are also a lot of different types of spiders.

This spider’s web was a corner web, but most people think of spider webs in more of a circle.

Spiders aren’t really dangerous. They’re actually more afraid of us than we are of them. I hope none of you kill spiders after reading this brief blog, and I hope to blog again soon.
