Our research aims to observe the effect of temperature on the production of cellar-spider webs. We plan to include nine spiders and evenly split them across our three conditions. Each spider will be kept in an enclosure based on a design from previous research and placed into one of the conditions. The enclosures will be weighed before they are put into their respective conditions and again when five days elapse. The three temperature conditions utilized for our experiment will include a cool condition, a room temperature condition, and a warm condition. These conditions will be kept at a constant temperature with the utilization of styrofoam boxes for insulation, a heat lamp for the warm condition, and cycling of ice for the cool condition.
