Attracting a Female Spider

Did you know that male spiders are known to pluck their cobwebs like a guitar or scrape them like a violin to attract female spiders?

There is more to the eye when it comes to spider silk. Silk can carry vibrations across many frequencies using it to relay information. Spiders can hear the vibration by listening with their legs, through organs called slit sensillae.

Spiders also use their plucking skills to assess the condition of their web and determine if repairs are needed.
