    This new barn I'm riding at is in TERRIBLE condition and one of the things I noted was how many cobwebs and such are all over the place there. I know I've always seen them at barns so I wondered if it was worth cleaning them off or if they served some purpose being there. Thanks for starting this thread, now I know!

    After reading about the fire hazard I checked my barn for cobwebs...there weren't any that I could see Isn't that odd? I wonder why there are none. I just broomed some on the ceiling of my laundry room in the house, so I know they are around.
    Makes me wonder what I have out there that is keeping the spiders from building them. Hmmmm

    I clean the spider webs either in the fall or in the spring so they can start fresh! In my tack room I clean when ever I see one, don't like them on my stuff! Also I watch the light bulbs to be sure nothing is on them, my nephew is a firefighter and they are great sources of info.

    In the horses area, they come in and out at will, I let the new webs stay there because they catch bugs. We don't have any spiders that can seriously harm a horse here, so no worries there.

    Vida, do you have bats that are eating the bugs so no spiders?

    No bats, just cats and chickens
