In some cultures it is considered bad luck to kill a spider. Another way to look at it is not to kill anything you don't intend to eat. JMO

The Germans eventually spotted this and noticed that a spider had spun a web across the entrance. They never gave a second glance to this believing that no one could be hiding in it and the search continued
My grandfather said the spider had saved their lives and this was a reason never to kill a spider.
Maybe this actually happened -I wouldn't know! Perhaps this story is a WW2 urban/military legend.
