What is Up With the Spiders?

I believe this is the first week in about a year that I didn't step foot on my beloved vessel.  Just had too much going on at home and at work to break free.  By the time I made it down to the marina this afternoon the spiders had taken over. 

Someone had babies, and they had spun webs everywhere in the cockpit. Little things everywhere!  I think I killed about twenty and swept their webs out to sea.  Very annoying. 

The bigger ones I hunted down and killed reduced the web volume, but they just keep coming.  I have to wonder if the anti-spider sprays actually work, or if they are a marketing hoax.  There's a few places where the webs are particularly productive that have nasty green residue underneath which is actually hard to clean up.

Nope, don't like 'em a bit.
