Hi,

Why do spiders make webs? Here is one answer:

http://www.whyzz.com/why-do-spiders-spin-webs

Different spiders use webs for different purposes (catching prey insects, mating, building homes, riding the wind currents, etc.) The webs they spin are adapted to the intended use. See:

I suggest you visit a library and read some books about spiders. They are fascinating and very diverse creatures!

Best regards,
