Spiders are generally beneficial to the garden; eating as much as they can catch. As you said, your little guy seems to be doing just that.
On the Red Hot Poker plant; keep in a sunny spot that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sun a day. Red hot poker is not fussy about soil type, but prefers life on the dry side so keep it away from poorly drained locations. Clip away the flower stalks after they fade.
