I'm actually a fan of spiders. They do a lot of good work in gardens, and even around around the house. They take care of other, more annoying bugs that can be bothersome, so for that I'm grateful.
That being said, there are certain places that I really don't want them weaving their magical webs. Like across my front screen door. This visitor (sorry for the blurry pictures but he was really moving), decided to build his web in what seemed like a sensible place. At least for him. It was across the corner of my screen door by the front light. Perfect place to catch his prey. But it did make it difficult to open the door.
