I've been dodging these spiders' webs all summer, which isn't hard to do except there are so many in the woods in Maryland, where I saw these.
The webs are 2-4 feet wide, usually bettween shrubs or small trees, and most I could step over or crawl under. Or go around - but I'd snag a few everyday and never got bitten.
They eat insects, so I give them a positive rating, plus they're so cute!
