How do you keep spiders out of the coop?

My chickens love to eat spiders, and do so at any chance, so I never ever see a spider in the coop for long!

Everything in my shop gets a spider web on it, in it, or around it if you leave it set for several days. I have a lot of Brown Widows that that get really agressive when they're broody and they nest in places like under work benches, behind tires, under your bike seat, on the recesses of engines and other places you put your hands without looking. And some kind of big black spiders live in the rafters and they drop poo all over the place.
I make a quick pass over the web with a propane torch. I'm surprised I haven't burnt my barn down torching spiders.
