That's probably for the best. If Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys has taught me anything, it's that talking to spiders only leads to trouble, usually in the form of obnoxious, unwanted, long-lost relatives showing up and stealing your fiancee's virginity. Peter Parker's life is complicated enough without all that to worry about.
