How do spiders make webs

Spiders produce silk from specialized glands located at the rear of their abdomen. By pulling the silk out with their legs, they can create intricate web patterns for trapping prey or for other purposes. The silk hardens upon exposure to air, forming the strong, flexible threads that make up the web.
