Live for the Love of it
Oh! I've seen some of those spiders in my yard too. Be careful as I think they can be poisonous. I generally like spiders...as long as they earn their keep :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argiope_aurantia I read their bite is like a bee sting.
I'm VERY careful around spiders. I don't like them, but I respect them :)This is the first time for yellow garden spiders in my yard, in fact I've never seen them before in my life. They look dangerous, but apparently--I was relieved to find out--they're not considered venomous. They CAN bite though, especially the females (that spin the zigzag web), if provoked or disturbed.It might be a good year for yellow garden spiders, so keep your eye out for them, Jules. Don't get bitten!
Thanks...Now if the weather could start cooling just a tad?The abundant mosquitoes have bitten me enough! :)
