The Garden Spider (Areneus sp.)gets its name because people often find its large web in their backyard fruit and vegetable gardens. These spiders usually build their webs a few feet off of the ground between plants to catch insects that fly past. Garden spiders weave a distinct "zigzag" shape in the center of their webs. Another common name is the Writing Spider probably because someone thought the thickened web strands looked like some kind of writing.

The yellow and black garden spider is one of the largest spiders in our area, sometimes close to 2 inches in length (and that's not including the legs!). Despite their formidable appearance, garden spiders are not considered dangerous (although people can develop allergic reactions to the bite of this spider, as with all biting and stinging insects and spiders).

For more on the garden spider, click to the Web of Species page on garden spiders at: http://www.wellesley.edu/Activities/...dergarden.html

Looks like what used to be called a Bananna spider when I was a kid. You could find them in all the empty lots that were grown over with weeds in the city. Big SOB's aren't they. I haven't seen one in a while.

HAHA in the time it took me to go find the desciption of it, 3 or 4 other posts were made.. OH WELL.

"Black and Yellow Argiope or "Garden Spider / Banana Spider"
A very large common spider in North America. Usually hangs in webs with its head facing the ground. It is brightly colored. Its venom is a neurotoxin similar to that of the black widow. However, its venom is not near as potent. Its bite causes local pain and redness with blisters forming. This bite usually resolves within 24 hours except for the bite mark."

http://www.surviveoutdoors.com/refer...ana_spider.asp

I'd kill it or move it farther away from the house. Certainly would not want it to make babies and get winter migration into your basement.

Yeah, I thought they were called banana spiders. You city folk need to head south a bit more. These things were EVERYWHERE where I grew up. Big and creepy as all hell, and I swear you would think their webs were strong enough to catch humans.

I'd wouldnt say killing it is mandatory, because it will hunt and kill other little buggers.. but I'd definitly get it the F' away from my house. (capture it and stick drop it off near a pond or somthing if you must let it live) You have to remember that everything does mate, so there WILL be more of those creepy bastards, and they will eventually be looking for a warm place to escape the cold winter.. your house! It would suck bigtime to have those things in the house. I dislike those typical fat brown/black ones enough.. if I had banana spiders around I'd certainly have the mapp hand torch ready to rock at all times.

The huge quantity of spiders around my brothers place in Algonquin have actually learned to FEAR the mystical yellow cylinder.. Normally I wouldn't waste my time, but there are so f'ing many of them they get seriously irritating. My basic rule is if they enter the house or build a nest above the door, it's time to light em up. heh

bad spider!

Champ and I used to feed the half dozen that were in our father's pine trees as kids. Man, every cricket, grasshopper, bumblebee and hornet we could smack and stun was lunch.

Of course we were not psycho enough to name them.

You can relocate them really easily. They'll spin a web just about anywhere. They eat a ton of insects, I would keep it. Do the environment some good, support your garden spider!!!

Is this type of spider aggressive towards one another? Maybe you could save it until you find another one and let them do battle.

Heh... if you disturb their web just a bit... they'll do a little dance for you too. They'll start bouncing the web back and forth like "HEY! Cut it out or I'll trampoline my ass right off of this thing and bite ya where the sun don't shine!"
