Oh, I'll be careful about the lid after any extended non-use. Thanks for the warning. I once had a large wasp nest under a patio chair when we took the tarp off after winter. I got stung at least 12 times.

I've got a couple plastic storage closets outside and the hornets like to build their nest right where you put you hand to open the door. Better than a spider though.

Never had the flash fire from spider problem. Mine has a little guard that is supposed to prevent that. One time after not using it most of the winter it would not light. So when we looked, the little guard was completely wrapped in spider web. Don't let all these things distract you from enjoying your new grill .. and use it enough that those critters won't want to stop by !

I actually like my spiders a little on the crispy side.

If I got a spider in my grill I'd have to sell the grill.

Well now, if the snake is of any decent size, they are mighty good grilled.
'Course, nobody here will eat snake but me.

Well, Hoot, if you cut me off a tiny piece and didn't tell me what it was, I would probably try it.
