Do you like spiderwebs?

I'm wondering about bulldozing the spider houses I have in my room. I'm talking about cellar spiders, those with long legs, nothing to worry about. They're kinda cute, not furry, not as cute as the baby in the photo, but cute still. Some people think a spiderweb is dirty, or it makes a room dirty, but it's just the house of a fella. And spiders aren't insects! While butterflies are insects! Eww, insects. I don't like butterflies. Ladybugs are okay though, I like the badass bugs with the shield. Well, the question was... do you usually get rid of spiderwebs? Or are you into the Addams Family style?

My jumping spiders don't make webs. They just walk around laying down a constant thread so if they jump off a wall, they are able to bungee jump back to safety. I had a little tiger striped one crawling on me today, and I offered it a ride on my phone and put it somewhere else. That was outside though, the ones inside are black and much bigger! Webs tend to meet the cleaner.
@OneOfMany I usually find the bungee jumpers outside too. Some make their webs horizontally so if I have to take the stairs, unless I decide to dance limbo, I have to break their thread. I spotted a few big black ones in the countryside (at home), those are kind of scary.

@sabtraversa I like the big black ones of the jumping spiders. I had one crawling on me once and put my hand out and it jumped onto it, happily accepting the ride I offered it. Then I put it on a nearby tree and we both went our separate ways.

I dont hate spiders but I get rid of spiderwebs in my house because it make my house looks inviting to lost spirits. I dont live in a haunted house so no spiderwebs for me. I catch the spiders and release them on bushes.
No I don't like spider webs. Usually I always run into the webs and its creepy and also annoying. Although the spiders are good at killing mosquitoes and other insects with their webs. So outside, I might leave them for a little while. Now ladybugs I do find to be a nuisance. I'm like a landing area for them
@sabtraversa Ha, very astute observation on lady bugs. Although lucky as you say their timing needs work. Usually, spread their charm while I'm reading a book on the beach near my home in New Jersey (U.S). Wonder if it's an Italian thing My Father's side comes from a small town in Northern Italy.
