I was spraying around the house for invasive bugs, my wife saw several new spiders around. This Brown Widow spider appeared to be dangling from a spot I just sprayed. Took it out with a twig and laid on the ground, it was still barely moving when I took a shot. That Home Defense Max is pretty potent stuff!

This.
I can only imagine the nightmare if my goats were able to spin webs.

On photographing webs. I've had interesting results with those big garden spider webs by gently misting them with water and then shooting them at night with a flash.
I had an early Sony digital, the DSC F717 that had a huge , heavy piece of Carl Zeiss glass and an IR feature that would show you in IR through the eyepiece what you were about to shoot with flash in pitch darkness. Made for easy pic composition at night. It died, but I'd grab another one if I could locate one. I'd have to dig through too many CDs to find an example shot so you'll just have to take my word for it.

A good trick for photographing spider webs is to bring a spray bottle of water and gently spray the web. Then shoot toward the light source to make a sparkling silhouette.

Edit - didnt read the post above before posting this one. FWIW, using a flash is no so good.

Spiders are really cool! Honeycombs are cool too.

I've got a yellow and black leg garden spider that has been working a couple days on a web right outside the den window. It does a heckuva job building them.

Depends. If you are shooting into a misted web towards empty darkness where the flash won't bounce, it can be very effective.
