The goal of this experiment was to determine whether the presence of LED light changes the behavior and web production of cellar spiders.  The data we collected supports the prediction that cellar spiders reside farther from the LED light. The data contradicts the portion of the prediction that the light decreases a spider’s web production. The data reveals that the cellar spider’s webs were found close, if not attached, to the LED light. Ultimately, cellar spiders tend to make their webs close to an LED light. There was not enough data to determine whether the color or presence of an LED light affected the production or density of their webs.
