It’s not just Bees and Wasps that live in our bee blocks, Spiders like to call the blocks home as well. They are quite active in the spring, and we frequently see webs. (Hey, it beats finding an empty block!) Sometimes the web is covered in sawdust, as in this picture, but often it is not. If you poke a spider web, you will find them to be springy.

Usually, we recommend you leave the spiders be. They need a home too. But, don’t forget to record and then report Spider webs as “New nest plugs” since they inhabit tunnels.
