I made big stick-tree display for the back yard with plastic spiders and webbing, about 6 feet tall and put it out about a week before Halloween. The day after I put it out, I noticed that some spiders had fallen off, thinking nothing of it I just whacked them back up. The next day I walked out and there was Leatherneck birds squawking about the tree, what the… so I watched them… flog up the plastic spiders…and then they stole my spider webbing for nests !!!
Buy the time it was Halloween I had 6 spiders left and no webbing in the stick tree, but there was snippets of fluff and the random spider in the neighbours tree.
