Curiosities: How long does it take for a spider to build or weave a web?

By Eddy Montilla.


Almost all blogs of this section, curiosities, come from things that happen in everyday life. For example, yesterday, I took a subway to go to work and I saw a web hanging from the ceiling. Considering that almost all places look immaculate in Japan, I wondered how long a spider needs to build (weave) a web. And this is the answer:

A spider needs an hour to weave a web approximately. Spiders usually build a web to catch insects for food. To weave a web does not take too much time, but maintenance of it can keep a spider very busy because of wind, insects that are caught and, of course, the broom of the person who is cleaning the area. Finally, Spiderman can do this job faster if his boss, J. Jonah Jameson, is not yelling at him: “Paaaaarker, bring me the photos!”
