Default spiders, kill them or let them stay?

i have very small spiders maybe about 2mm in size with small webs that are on set up on my hop supports. i didnt think they would do the hops any harm and might eat bugs that will? so do i let them stay or give them the soap spray?

Killing spiders is bad karma plus, If you think of traditional hop fields, they probably don't kill spiders, but I may be totally wrong.

To prevent the spiders from getting out of control consider releasing ninjas in your hop garden.

Spiders are GOOD, don't KILL them. Your hops will thank you. Oh and Spiders ONLY eat insects, they are not designed to eat plants or make spots on your leaves.
