Take the Spider Web Challenge

I wasn’t kidding when I filmed this spider episode. Go out there, find a spider web and see if you can find out which silk fibers are sticky and which are not. (Adults, I’m talking to you too. Why should kids have all the fun?)

Not all spiders spin orb-webs. Some make sheet webs, cobwebs, funnel webs, you name it. If you find something different, see if you can figure out which parts of those webs are sticky. With a light touch, you can satisfy your curiosity without harming the spiders or their webs. When you’ve done it, leave your comment here about your experience. What was it like for you? Did you discover something that surprised you?
