Yellow Garden Spider


Spinning a web at the side of a house, a female Black and Yellow Garden Spider prepares to trap its next meal. For many gardens across the United States, the presence of this spider helps indicate vegetation is in good health, as the spider captures and devours pests that may gnaw on heirlooms or cause irreversible damage to leaves and stalks. While it may look scary, the Yellow Garden Spider is mostly harmless to adults and very rarely preys on anything larger than itself, with preference to small insects.
