|2) they want deceive predators pretending to be ants.|
In this case it is ridiculous to assume that spiders are mimicking ants only when their predators do not observe them.
I suspect you're being intentionally obtuse here.
The spiders mimic ants, which keeps most insectivore predators away.
Any predator that shows interest is likely to be one that prefers ants.
When a predator does show interest, the spider tries to look more like spider. Since the predator prefers ants, it loses interest in the spider.
