Currently testing 42.04: Wild spiders are willing to web a dwarf invader that arrived as part of a goblin siege. I'll test with other kinds of invaders, but a silk farm is definitely possible with a wild spider and an invader. --Gchristopher (talk) 04:34, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Confirmed on 42.04: Wild spiders will also web goblin invaders, so using a dwarf as bait is not advised. Made minor edits to reflect this, but the trap designs need updated to reflect that an invader is a more convenient bait. (Place and recapture the invader in the same fashion as the spider.) --Gchristopher (talk) 09:00, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Still works in 44.12: Dump-designate disarmed goblins work perfectly in this trap. Design with two abutting 3x1 rooms at a right angle with one central door in each room and one emergency cage trap combined with the two layer bridge design works great.
