On my Great Loop trip this summer, I negotiated an "Agreement of Understanding " with the resident spiders on my boat. We established safe web zones and the line of demarcation (master stateroom door threshold). They were allowed to web ouside and in certain areas inside. There was no tolerance for crossing the line of demarcation and the galley was also off limits. They were made aware of the size limit (about a nickel ) pertaining to the "live and let live" clause.

Overall the agreement was successful with a number of the resident aliens figuring it out, getting Ted's Green card, and flourishing . There were some rebels that had to be repatriated or executed for capital crimes. Generally, you can't fix stupid. Given a choice between flying aliens and spiders, I'll take the spiders.
