Tarantulas do not make the “typical” spider web that other spiders do.

Tarantulas do produce silk, however, and they will use this silk for many different things.

Do spiders use old webs?

Many spiders will build webs to catch prey but there are lots of spiders who prefer to hunt, and they use their webs for other things. All spiders are born to spin. These are the webs that trap insects for food. Many of these spiders will build new webs every night.
