Hi, I have a copious amount of spider webs (and spiders for that matter) in my garden.. I can hardly go anywhere in the garden without running into some silk. My question is, are they beneficial? If not, how do I get rid of them?

I love spiders in my garden. I even bring them out there from inside the house. I heard they are beneficial but I don't know why exactly. Maybe someone else can help us out with that.

I so wish I had some orb weavers in my garden.Po

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
