What Is This Creepy Spider Web on My Grass and How Can I Get Rid of It?

I had never seen anything like this before and I can’t believe I’m just now discovering it.

I noticed the webs on my lawn the other day so I decided to take a picture of it and do some research. According to Wikipedia: The Agelenopsis is a genus of spiders, known as American grass spiders. They weave sheet webs that have a funnel shelter on one edge. The web is not sticky, but these spiders make up for that shortcoming by running very rapidly.

I had no clue there were so many different kinds of spiders around here! There are even two types of poisonous spiders in Michigan that I didn’t know existed.
