It doesn’t take the spiders very long to make themselves at home! This morning when I went to grab my old tennies (worn the day before) I found a cellar spider had already decided my shoe was the perfect place to live. He/she was hanging out on a fine web inside my shoe. I had just taken the shoes off about 8 hours earlier.
It makes me wonder how a spider decides a certain place is the right spot for a web. We often see them wandering from one place to another, so how do they know it’s time to settle down?
