A More Effective Broom

One thing I have to deal with much more often here in California than I did in Canada is bugs. Sure Canada has its fair share of bugs but there are way more in California. I just found a couple of spider/cob webs in the upper reaches of my bedroom walls and when I was cleaning them up it got me thinking.

Spider webs are designed to catch things by entrapping and entangling them. I used my broom to get rid of these spider webs and as a result the spider webs became stuck to the broom. I decided not to remove these webs because they should improve the effectiveness of the broom by collecting dirt (or at the very least dead bugs).
