Why don’t spiders stick to the web

Jan 10th, 2016

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Unlike their preys, spiders do not get caught on their webs and this can be attributed to the fact that the spider avoids coming into contact with its web all at once. On the contrary, the spider moves nimbly primarily along the strands of its web in such a way that only the hairs located at the tip of its legs come into contact with the sticky threads of the web. This movement prevents the spider from landing on its own made trap. At the same time, the spiders constantly clean their legs thoroughly to get rid of silk particles as well as other debris from their legs that might result in the spider getting caught on the web. 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
