When you are decorating your home for Halloween, be wary of putting up fake spider webs in your yard. Many craft stores sell synthetic fiber material that can be stretched, pulled and manipulated to look like oversized spider webs on windows, bushes and trees, but this material is problematic for a few reasons. First, it’s not recyclable or biodegradable, so it ends up clogging landfills. But wild animals like birds and owls can get entangled in it, too. If you want to decorate, stick with natural things like gourds, pumpkins and dried corn instead.
