(QS. Al-Ankaboot 29: Verse 41)

Spiders build their webs to catch prey. But everytime they catch prey the web gets damaged or destroyed and the spider needs to rebuild it again.
Wind and rain damage their structure, while the gluey coating on the spiral thread that ensnares flying insects is rendered ineffective by pollen and dust. As a result the webs are often rebuilt every night - an operation requiring the manufacture of some 20 metres of silk.
