In Reply to: RE: small random construction (spider) 'webs' in corners. no insect visible posted by 3+4=5 on March 08, 2017 at 18:19:15
They are made by small spiders, with dis-proportionally long legs/small body that look sort of like mini daddy-long legs (which are not really spiders). I don't know the species off hand.
They are harmless, and will catch small insects in the house. They are short lived, but reproduce well, hence all the webs.
PS. spiders are not insects.
Just a coincidence today I decided to vacuum under the couch. When I moved it a small spot on wall at edge of couch back, close to latest sightings of silk, moved.. ah hah! got you!
I have over 90% confidence the spider caught is the one making the web 'ettes.
If so, spiders are known to easily survive a trip down that tube and come out (starting in your vacuum storage closet) unharmed.
So the spray should be enough to paralyze the critter. If not kill it.
