Why don't spiders stick to their own webs

How can I state my hypothesis and then test it to make my point.
Vicki Rohall-would like to know how to state a hypothesis and test it to draw conclusions on why spiders do not stick to their own webs.

Now that you've got a question, if you haven't done so already, you'll probably want to do some background research and then make a prediction that answers the question, "Why don't spiders stick to their own webs?" This prediction is your hypothesis.

For more information, see http://www.sciencebuddies.org/mentoring/project_scientific_method.shtml.

Hope that helps.
