Can we use spiderwebs to catch moisture to drink?

    No, but scientists have used synthetic materials to the mimic properties of spider webs to create large nets hooked up by poles called Fog collection to catch the water in the air and use it for drinking water in dry places like Nepal. The water which is caught is collected in troughs in the ground.

    We can mimic the spider web and harvest dew for drinking water. This is a new breakthrough that could be immensely helpful in places where fresh water is scarce. The current problem is figuring out how to make our artificial spider web silk more durable and less cost-prohibitive. It’s just a matter of time before that is accomplished though, especially if people such as yourself express such an interest in this type of technology!
