This morning I noticed 100's of small spiderweb nets all over my yard!

The little "tent-like" webs are only 3-5 inches across!

Anyone have an idea what kind of spiders they are and whether or not they are good or bad?

I don't know the real science for you but I'm 99.99999% sure they are totally harmless. From a human perspective probably not good or bad but harmless.

There are jillions of spiders in nature that we never even see. Around here if you walk the woods in the dark with a LED headlamp you can see a spiders eye every square foot at times. And so on.

I hate spiders  when I was about 4-5 I got cut with a piece of glass and my grandma took spider webs from the addict and put in the cut  :o  maybe that's why I'm a little different than most  :D
