    AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!! The neverending cobweb dilemma!!!!
    Actually I take a push broom and knock down a lot of them, then I use my ShopVac to take them off of the broom. In my loft I use both the broom and an old horse brush (that's past-it) and I vacuum. I don't stall during the summer so I try to clean them up before the winter so my horses don't end up wearing them!
    Somebody else I know uses a leaf blower to blow them off, then cleans them up on the floor afterwards. =D

    I would leave them there, and only thin them out a bit if they get massive. They are a huge help with flies and other bugs, we hardly have any buzzing around, even in summer in the stables.

    Well, hubby bought me a duster with an extension. I'll see how it works combined with the leaf blower. When I get behind I'll remember all of you who said "leave them be" but I'm sure I'll still struggle and want to knock them down as I hate how they make my freshly painted stalls look.

    I might be dense but I don't get how you all are using a shop vac? What type of shop vac and attachment are you using? Mine is a canister with just a hose that would not work for anything high up at all.
